Full disc 02-04-2021

Post by rsfoto »


After three days with no Sun today I got a hole between Stratus cuds and ehre they are.

Nice filaprom on the Southern limb. White light no spots at all.

As usual best seen in full size in a new tab/window :bow2

I see in your images a polar crown of filaments in the north. I could see only two of these visually today. That filaprom looks nice in your images too!

The limited disk details still managed to show a lot in the Ha. Too bad the WL doesn't offer as much.

Great images, well done :bow
