Recently I became aware that there was a sunspot AR2339 which was growing in size and making its way across the sun. Unfortunately the weather has not been permissible for imaging it until Tuesday. While there were clouds crossing in front of the sun, there was still short periods where the sun came into full view unhindered by the clouds. Continue reading Sunspots AR2339 and AR2345

As the sun was particularly bright and high in the sky, I decided to do some imaging of the sunspots currently making its way across the surface of the sun over the coming days. Continue reading Sunspots 14/4/15 (AR2321 & 2324)

On my day off on Tuesday, as there was clear skies around 1pm I decided to take my telescope out for some solar imaging. The seeing has been fairly poor since the start of the year, which poses a particular problem when imaging at 9000mm effective focal length (900mm, 5x power mate, 2x crop factor of Micro 4/3rds camera).

I was in the garden on Monday shooting the sun again. The seeing was not very good unfortunately. But there was an interesting sunspot in the centre of the sun AR2227. Continue reading Sunspot AR2227

Recently I managed to image sunspot AR2005 with the Skywatcher ED100. Unfortunately the seeing was rather poor and hence that was limiting what I could achieve with a single shot. Continue reading Sunspot AR2205 – stacking
