Re: Sol from the 27th of October 2020.

Very nice to hear your imaging flow in tough conditions. In a way it is better to hear that the volcano is belching little and often, better out than in, and certainly better than building up ;)

Super images :hamster: :bow

Re: sunspot group 3 filters APO66mm

Wonderful!!! the first image reminds me of 11 years ago and the joy to see spots like that in CaK for the first time :bow :hamster: roll on the new cycle!

Re: AR NUMBERING & a DRAWING 26-10-2020

The active regions in the north have never been named. However, these two new ones have spots so I guess by tomorrow they will 79 and 80. Lovely dr...

A lovely set Pedro :bow :hamster: your CaK really shows how the northern active region is actually 2. The one on the left looks like an old and decaying region.

Re: October 26 2020 Observations. White light images!

A lovely report, I'm glad that the south active region seems to be developing well, that is a good sign the new cycle is getting stronger. This time last year we were getting interested about the smallest fleck and scrutinising whether it's polarity had changed to cycle 25, this year we now have mul...

Re: Full disk 25-10-2020

It was super to be formally introduced to the famous palm tree yesterday :hamster: probably the improvement is that you just reset everything in the west. All your images are fabulous with bountiful detail :bow the new AR in the south looks impressive!
