Sun in CaK / White Light With Stellarvue SV80s , AR152 + Lunt CaK filter & Baader Wedge Uploaded 6/21/15 Daily Report For Sunday, June 21st, 2015
 A couple of nice spot groups today, after such a very long peroid of basically a blank solar disk.

Lets start with the full disk view with the 80mm Stellarvue, Baader wedge and Continuum filters.

Next, I made this two part panorama with the AR152 and same wedge and filters at prime focus:

If we then put in the 5x televue powermate barlow to bring the focal length up to 5000mm,

we can now resolve the granulation a bit, despite the poor seeing:

And on the limb this emerging spot region is just coming onto the disk:

Finally, here in the light of Calcium K (Near UV) we can see quite a stunning scene around the active regions at

this wavelength. A Lunt B600 Cak filter was used - not the greatest for imaging due to its small exit aperture, but

the flat was able to rescue it:

Finally, the limb group in Cak:
