I had a lucky window of opportunity from 6.40 am (when the sun rose above my local horizon) until 7.25 am when it clouded over completely. I was pleased as it enabled me to continue my daily sequence of solar images since the first one on April 17th.

There are now eight ARs with spots on view, though two of them take some spotting on my image.  The SN is up by 32 from yesterday to 126 today.  As far as I can recall, this must be pretty close, if not above, to the maximum number it has been this solar cycle. (?)

The single frame and crop below was taken at 7.00 am with the Tecnosky 102ED F7, Olympus E-M5 Mk11,  1/160 at 200asa.

8 different ARs at the same time is very impressive

Yes it is Pete.  Its just a shame that at least two or three  of them are rather inconspicuous.  Of course, the way the SN is derived, one mega spot in the middle of the disc would score far less than what is on show today.  Then again, the SN is a measure of activity rather than visual splendour. 😊.
