Solar Images

Taken on 26th April 2016.  AR2533 is visible in the centre, whilst AR 2535 is just moving onto the eastern limb.

An white light image of the Sun taken on 31st December 2015 through the 6" Refractor.  One major sunspot group was on view (AR 2473), certainly a lot quieter at present than in some of my images taken a year ago.

The Sun on 2nd January 2015.  From the Western limb (right) AR2246 (very decayed?), AR2251 is just past the meridian followed by AR2254 and AR2252.  AR2253 is the large group of sunspots, with AR2255 having just appeared on the Eastern limb.
