busy Sun (Blue Mountains)

We observed the Sun in Hydrogen-alpha and full spectrum white light using the Tele Vue 101mm with the Coronado Solar Max filters and the Celestron 14" with baader film on a choked down cap.

The Sun was busy!

There were lots of flares and prominences along perimeter and lots of sunspots, some big ones, on the surface! The big spot near the centre 1244; 1242 is the big one on the far left.

Lots to look at. Busiest I've seen Sol in a long time...
