sunspots observed 28/12/2009 1pm GMT


Recommended Posts

using ETX 80:

12.5x 2 spots roughly half way down the lower half of the sun [presumably north?] and about 1/3 of the way from the meridian to the RH limb [east?].

similar view at 15.5x and 20x.

40x: 2 smaller spots visible between the main two - one quite close to the RH spot, the other about half way between that smaller spot and the LH spot.

73x: each of the larger spots show as split - these two pairs of spots forming a sort of 'V' shape.

First view of sunspots not practically falling over the limb. Hopefully the above description makes sense. Would be interested in hearing from anyone with higher power to see if their observations match these.
