 These days, the sun is very low in activity despite that it is still so near "Solar Max". The blank sun was for the first time in a very long time punctuated with a new larger spot group. Here is what I got this morning, the seeing was really bad, like 1.5/5 but stopping down the six inch to 4 inches helped a great deal.
