A new sunspot – February 9 and 10, 2018

Scroll down to content

Despite being at the solar minimum, our star produced a new active region. Of course, imaging it is a bit difficult due both to the low altitude of the Sun, and to the turbulence in the air associated with this time of the year. Still, a couple of shots were possible.

Equipment: (February 9) 150mm F/5 refractor, Quark H-alpha filter, ASI 174MM, seeing 3/10. (February 10) 115mm F/7 refractor, Quark H-alpha filter, ASI 174MM, seeing 5/10.
