Another quiet day on the sun in white light, no sunspots to be seen.  As I am relative newcomer to white light observing, I believe that I have seen some granulation, they looked like small dark spots in clusters, am I correct in my assumption?

Granulations appears as a pattern of brighter speckles rather than dark spots, in my experience, although as focus changes you might get the impression of dark spots on a brighter background. The images below show the effect (they were taken a while ago)

Thanks, Michael, that is similar to what I was seeing.
