1.4.19 Spots before the eyes.

Recommended Posts

Earlier blue skies now being spoilt by scruffy, secondhand clouds sent over from Gravely Blighted.

Two small but distinct, widely spaced spots in white light. Some interesting disturbance visible around the smaller one.

H-a: Much larger area of plage with darker areas and one large, clear spot on one edge.

Better day here today, now the clouds have kindly popped off across the channel,  apart from trying to image between gusts of wind.

Spots developing and nice prom on the oncoming rim.

It was hardly worth freezing in the obs. for most of the morning.
Went in for lunch and out comes the sun on automatic pilot.

There's an arched prom on the opposite edge of the disk.

The spot group is very complex at higher powers. I used up to 220x in WL in the 7" with a Baader SC.
The main spot is a 1½ double. The second a crescent of several smaller spots. A third and smaller spot lies off to one side.
Large area of disturbed surface in both WL and H-a. Much more so in H-a.

Convinced myself [briefly] I was seeing overall surface texture [supergranulation?] in WL but then the cloud came back again. :crybaby2:
