New Sunspot Activity 16/01/2021

Post by Martin_S » Sat Jan 16, 2021 6:30 am

Today was my first real opportunity to Image this year due to Sub tropical summer clouds in Brisbane. I was able to image some emerging sunspot activity on the central southern area on the Sun in white light with my 180 Mak , ND 3.8 full aperture filter, IR cut , Baader solar continuum filter and ASI120mm camera. H-alpha images were taken with my double stacked Lunt 50/60 H-alpha telescope and ASI290mm camera.

An excellent set of images, Martin. Officially now numbered AR2796 (or AR12796 in full). You’ve captured this beautifully.
