the western limb, AR1422 is stunning surrounded by "facula".

very active non sunspot region in center, and on the limb is
our disappearing friend - AR1422.

were the first solar images I have ever taken from our observatory
in Happy Jack - Clear Creek Canyon Observatory. The day was quite
windy, and seeing was 2/5. But the transparency was higher than
in Payson and the solar granulation appeared more distinct. I
cant wait to see what this site will produce when the seeing
returns to its sub arc second normal conditions!
disk overview. Note that AR1422 is now gone, and we are left
with several nice small spots including AR1423. The entire disk
is covered with the solar granulation seen very clearly here
- that is not noise.

Barlow close up of the largest sunspot on the left edge, with
some smaller pores in the center. The many other close ups were
trashed by the high winds.
white web work seen all over this disk is the so called "Chromospheric
Network". It is essentially the outlines of the outside
periphery of the supergranules.
