Well this was a quiet one, I think you folks will be hard pushed to comment on such a featureless Sun :lol:

Two quick pics taken with the PSTs and DMK41 at lunchtime in between hail showers :)

The sun seems so small with no activity. I start to wonder if its shrinking!

Hello Alexandra,

While the sun is extremely quiet, in the H-a I see at least three areas where an 11" telescope will show something worth
to image at a good seeing. Something like I posted here. viewtopic.php?f=4&t=25272
And one such an area in the CaK. Also may be some prominences at the limb.

Hi Alexandra...

A quiet disk, but the images are sharp and do have some small scale details. Nicely done :bow

Quiet, but lovely, subtle detail in there with high contrast!

Very best,
