Rusted

For those of you catching a glimpse of brightness today [Saturday]

Nice spot set in "Saturn" rings right on the limb in white light.

More spectacular in H-a. Bar through the spot with parallel, broken filament.

Plage area inboard and a prom nearby on the limb.

Registax keeps freezing at 87% on "Align." So no images yet.

Nice image, typical, first decent AR for ages and endless cloud here and just when the Sun has dragged itself to a decent height.

Thanks, Dave. Very cloudy here with only a few blue bits.
I was getting some brief but remarkably crisp 'live' images on the laptop during capture.

 I aimed for a very large Y800 image [just as an experiment] but failed to gain anything very useful from Registax.
Re-working it in Photofiltre didn't help either. I can bring out more surface detail but the limb retreats by a several Earth diameters.
And we don't want any "Save the Earth!" demos on here, do we? :wink2:

After a meridian flip.

Over-baked in Registax. :icon_clown:

Caught it briefly through thin cloud between heavier cloud today..!  Great to see some activity.  Some nice detail in Ha (LS50DS) - the fine filament crossing the sunspot complex seemed to have a significant Doppler shift to the other large filament relatively nearby.  Nice prom on the limb near the AR too.
