Dear observers,

today I could sketch the two active regions with my 8 cm Apo. Magnification was 120x. What a difference to my 8 cm spotting scope, even with yellow filter there!

Uwe,

An excellent observation of the solar disk and sunspot groups. You have captured the umbra/penumbra very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Looks that the "new baby" is also doing his job on the sun! Fine sketch.
