AR2529 Heart Sunspot


Last Sunday morning I was eventually able to picture this large group AR2529 again. Last time it was just appearing at the Sun edge: http://astrojolo.blogspot.com/2016/04/zatom-planetary.html  . Now it traversed the Sun disk and is close to hide at the other edge. Magnificent view with SC filter and 16mm eyepiece.
Pictures below made with SCT8" and ND5 filter plus Baader SC filter (top) and Baader R610 filter (another two). ASI120MM camera, and TV x2 barlow (last picture).




Clear skies!

  1. Niezła skala . Uchwyciłeś plamę zanim uciekła :)

    1. Ano, w Zatomiu uchwyciłem zaraz jak wyszła, a teraz zanim zwiała za tarczę. Ciekawe czy jeszcze raz wyjdzie z drugiej strony znowu :)
