Re: Again on the color of sunspots (AR3712)

That's a very nice study :bow :hamster: there certainly is colour in a white light image. Maybe we need to treat the image similar to the mineral moons that we see? I found the white balance the hardest part though, it is difficult to find a starting point.

Re: Solarcan June 2024

Well done Stuart :bow :hamster: I'm wondering whether it is possible to get maximum zenith. You would have thought the further north you go, the Sun doesn't get so high in the sky even in summer, but we still struggle. Maybe on Svalbard they can get the full set?

That's a glorious filament, I wonder how long it will be when it has finally rotated all the way round, it keeps on going! maybe it will lift off before it gets fully round, who knows!
