Wednesdays H-alpha viewing. I've only just got into solar Imaging and these are my best results so far. The viewing was fair, with high level haze but I was able to image through it. Sunspot AR 2733 is now visible.

Hi there... nice images.

You may want to consider rotating your images to match those on the GONG site.  http://halpha.nso.edu/

 

Best,

Rick

Very nice images. Currently 9deg F with a 15mph wind here in South Dakota. Not ideal for solar imaging.
