S1Mas,

Excellent white light observation. I like your template, too.

This new active region (1045) is a source of strong M-class flares for anyone with an Ha rig.

Thanks guys :)

The sun today is very interesting and sky is clear all day, so I looked second time, but with CPC 800 this time. 1045 relief significantly changed within 6 hours and became all different. I spotted an additional sun spot group ( contains 2 spots ) west of the 1045th and between 1043. Currently you can see up to 4 spot groups!
Spots in 1045 alone number counted: 34
Total, according R. Wolf formula, I found: 79!
http://www.spaceweather.com spot number: 30
