Solar Analemma. This outstanding image from Alexandra Hart taken over a period of 4 years charts the midday position of the sun in the sky throughout the year. The north–south component of the analemma results from the change in the Sun's declination due to the tilt of Earth's axis of rotation. The east–west component results from the nonuniform rate of change of the Sun's right ascension, governed by combined effects of Earth's axial tilt and orbital eccentricity.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and looking forward to a great solar cycle 25!

Hi:
A set of CaK and Ha FD´s taken with the 102mm f/9 Meade with a CaK PSTmod, and the Solarmax 90-DS.
Thanks for looking.
Eric.

Lovely full discs Eric, I was noticing some dark filament like objects in the CaK but they don't seem to replicate in the Halpha. Maybe one of those interesting features that Apollo was talking about (I can't remember what he called them).

Alexandra and guys, thanks for looking and commenting.
Alexandra, yes I also remember Apollo talking about some diagonal line features. like the 3 or more diagonal parallel lines of small white spots on the left next to the big ecuatorial active zone.
Good day,
Eric.
