The Sun 4 April 2020 White Light

First Sun image for nearly a year due to there being very little to see - the spot count has only increased by 19 since my last image in may 2019 and most of those were tiny and short lived.

Re: The Sun 22 September 2017 White light

Yes SW ED120 APO in my observatory but in the winter months I use an "ordinary" SW 120mm achromat from a different part of the garden (due to trees). You really can't tell the difference in the final images!
