Solar from today 01.12.2020

Actually managed to see the Sun this morning.

Not wanting to miss an opportunity I jumped at the chance to get the Obs open and the Solar scope out.

 

The seeing was abysmal but I did manage to get some half decent images before the clouds rolled in once again.

 

Focusing was near on impossible with the seeing changing in waves of distortion so the images are a bit on the grainy side. 

 

This is the view that greeted me when I first started.

After she had cleared the trees the activity on the surface emerged.

Adding the 2.5X Barlow.

Decreased the FOV to 1000 X 1000 to get a closer look at the detail.

Nice one Graham.

I actually got to see this in white light for about 5 minutes before the sun was blanketed out by cloud. I couldnt view earlier because of the same problem as yourself, trees.
