start with a prime focus shot with the six inch stopped to 4
inches. The new tiny spot has considerable detail.
close up with the 5x Powermate shows an extensive penumbra and
many small black umbras.
nice white faculae on the limb:
when there is nothing better to shoot, the center of the Sun
shows off its granulation fairly well today, with some dim gray
patches - known as "Veiled Sunspots" here and there.
calcium K shots are far more interesting from an activity point
of view. While the calcium granulation is quite small, the plage
(UV Faculae) is quite extensive seen here as white areas in circular
arcs that define the "Super Granulation".
nice area on the disk, no sunspots but nice plage.
the center of the Sun:
shows a small crescent phase.
