Clouds rolling over the sun_(1080p)

This is a shot of the sun taken in the early morning as clouds passed over it. It was the very first shot i took once i got my new mount and telescope setup. Unfortunately there were no sun spots that day or else you would have been able to see them.

This was taken on a 800mm FL 8" Aperture F/4 Newtonian scope. The Mount was a EQ-6 which had not been fully polar aligned. I used a Full Aperture Solar Filter of course. The movie is in real-time, the clouds were moving fast that day.
