Nice disk Charl. I think there is a small spot/ pore hiding in there. Got brief glimpses in moments of good seeing. The cloud cover here is only about 30% so hopeful I will be able to keep an eye on it for a bit.

That is a spanking clean disk Charl. Spotless is the new "in".

It's not quite spotless fortunately. Visually there is a small spot in the faculae which has just appeared on the limb, and there is a small group of three spots/pores in the centre of the disk. Have a go and see if you can see/image them. Hopefully @michael.h.f.wilkinson might catch it if he gets some clear sky.

I just tried Dave and it was an epic fail because the cloud came over before I could get focused. I'll try again, might be tough though, it is not big!

Astronomy is the ideal hobby for someone with lupus - so you have to go and get into solar!
