Sunspot and prom April 11

April 11, Australia. Captured two images yesterday of AR 2738. First is a Ha shot thru a Lunt 100 SS scope with Canon 550d camera. Second is thru a WO 81 mm refractor with 540 nm herschel wedge. Both single exposures with a Canon 550d camera. I estimated the sunspot to be 45,000 km at widest. Thanks...

Sept 7 Pair of proms on Sun

Sept 7, SE Australia late afternoon.
A pair of prominences on the Sun's SW limb looked interesting enough to image.
This single exposure pic was taken with a Canon 550d camera attached to a Lunt 100 Ha scope.
No other features visible on sun's surface.
Thanks for viewing.

Re: Partial solar eclipse 13 July

I was lucky to be just in the eclipse zone - the further south from my location the greater the coverage of the sun by the moon. No sunspots today.
Thanks all. Cheers, John W.
