Today was my Birthday…...a week off work and beautiful weather to boot!
Nothing much planned for today other than enjoying the sun and another bash at solar imaging. Set up the scope of about an hour or so to grab a couple of shots of the sun and see whats active.
This is a single shot taken with my Nikon D7000 mounted on my Skywatcher 250p DS on an NEQ6 Pro. The scope cap was on with a home made solar filter on the smaller aperture utilising Baader solar film (as per the one made in my blog, shown previously.)
Some sunspots are clearly visible: 1444, 1445 an 1448 (I think)
