Its getting difficult to image the Sun in my back garden. Up here at 55N, the Sun doesn’t get too high in the winter and trees, neighbours’ houses and other obstacles become more of a problem. At the moment, I run out of light at about 1430 UT.
These were taken around 1300 UT with two telescopes. The full disc false colour Sun was taken with a 480/80mm refractor and the medium view and close-up with a 1000/102mm refractor. A TeleVue 2.5xBarlow lens was used for the close-up..
AR2209 is actually monster sunspot AR 2192 back again after traversing the farside.
It seems just as active as it was before with a M3.2 class solar flare today at 1240 UT.
