Holy $111T !! This is incredible! What resolution. It’s among the best granulation images I have seen an amateur do. Stunning job! The sunspot shows stunning resolution too!

This one would be truly beautiful colorized.

👍🏻👍🏻 James

Average seeing? I would love to see your good seeing.

That is gobsmackingly good. Just wow.

PS - just love the way you can also see bits of features in the dark centre of the spot, as if you're looking deeper into a cave and there's s/t there staring back at you :lol:

Laszlo I'm guessing that's a homemade solar newtonian - if so, would you be willing to share tips & specs on the ATM in a separate thread please?
