It has been classified as having a beta-gamma-delta magnetic field and these fields are prone to instability that can produce X-class solar flares. During the rotation around the visible limb of the Sun it was quiet and produced only one major X1 flare.
During imaging the seeing was very poor and was even more obvious while imaging at higher focal ratios.
This giant spot is about to rotate off the face of the Sun, this was probably my first and last shot of it. But this is not the only obvious sunspot currently visible on the Sun. I managed to capture a few other.
