Hi.
I tried the sunspots in detuned filter (white light) and h-alpha later in the afternoon. Seeing very bad once again.

I like the second one, is it the spot 1726 ? You show us so much details! If it is this spot group, I sketched this area April 20, smaller but very activ at this time. The white areas stays brillant during no more than 10 minutes.

Andre,
Beautiful! The sunspot 1726 is massive it looked very good even in my sun funnel. Very nice capture.

Andre,

Terrific sketching.
You can't tell from the sketches that the viewing was poor.

Frank :)

Thanks to you all guys.

Frank. I can still capture nice details in bad seeing but its much longer waiting for a short moment of clarity.

Will. If I'm correct, its the first time I see you here. Thanks for your comment.
