start with prime focus, the lowest magnification my six inch
gives. While I cant quite get the whole sun in on one shot, both
halves can be seen here. East is to the left. The large drawn
out sunspot is huge! I will see if it is visible with my eclipse
glasses with no telescope.
the west side of the disk, we have a very nice group on the right
of smaller spots, and a tiny chain in the middle
was just horrible. 1/5 at best. I didnt push it too much at first
and stopped the six inch down to a 4 inch to clarify the image.
Here is the big group close up:
really liked the smaller group too, like a parallelagram.
of course the tiny chain in the center of the Sun:
improved momentarily, and I pulled off the stop for the full
six inches. This sunspot takes up the entire frame!
Calcium K shots
you know, Calcium K is a wave band in the near Ultra Violet and
is not visible to the eye. But it records some fantastic structures
around the big sunspot:
the smaller group near the limb really comes to life in Calcium:
