Re: Sol from the 21st of February 2018.

Excellent results Eric! The sun is quiet but all those lil' proms are nice. Last day of painting today and getting the room back together, hopefully I will get some sunshine at some point this coming weekend, so far this week has just been grey skies.

Good capture Eric. I'm hoping for some clear skies today; I got up just after 6 to turquoise blue skies and was optimistic, but then 25 minutes later after getting out of the shower the sky is totally greyed over with cloud.

Re: A Blank Saturday Sun - 17th february

Thanks everyone, I appreciate your kind words. I wish it was better weather so I could have imaged more of the active region Valery; fingers crossed the weather forecast improves as the new week passes.

I'm glad you are all safe Eric.

It's amazing the technology we have in place that in this case you had the warning. Solar disks in an earthquake, impressive!

Mighty fine images Valery!

I like how when we look closer in CaK it gets a bit softer

A Blank Saturday Sun - 17th february

I took a break from starting to decorate our living room today as there was a few transient patches of blue. Old yellow face was quiet, with only a few wispy proms and hints of small filaments. Taken with the double stack Lunt 50 and PGR Chameleon 3 camera. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4664/385092...
