Not much on the surface now but lots of proms to keep you occupied today. Here is a full shot with all of the proms (Andre, this would keep you busy sketching!)



And a close up of one of the more active regions:

Nice shots, Warren. I'm solar observing vicariously through others here as we've had no observable sun for a while now. It's been pouring rain since bedtime last night. Sheesh!

Thanks Andy/Ray. Ray, wish I could, but after taking these shots the sun has gone AWOL and the forecast looks as bleak as yours!

Wonderful images! How did you block the main image of the sun in the first picture, did you use some kind of occulting disk? If so, was it home made or commercial? I would love to know more about the technical details.

Thanks!

Ash

Thank you for the comment Ash. The sun is blocked during processing in Photoshop simply by doing a Magic Wand Select of the totally white disk of the sun, doing a feather of about 3 pixels and then using the Paint Bucket Tool to paint it black. Below is what it would look like before using the Paint Bucket tool. Blacking out the brilliant white disk allows you to see the proms much better, just like during an eclipse.
