Solar Viewing Reminder
      #5614774 - 01/10/13 12:37 AM

Today I looked at the Sun with a Questar and was treated to a view of many sunspots. As another has reported on CN, "the sun has measles." The website for Space Weather listed a sunspot count of 144 for today!

I used a 24mm Brandon with the Q's solar filter to enjoy a view of the entire disk, using the internal Barlow to enlarge some detail as desired.

If anyone else has used the Q to view the sun lately, post your results and tips for others.
