Solar Imaging Session - December 20, 2009


After the conclusion of an overnight ALP Astro-Camp stargazing session last December 19-20, 2009. I was able to see the Sun peering through cloud openings and since AR 11035 is still visible near the limb, I trained my scope to the Sun and was able to see not only AR11035 Group but also 2 more smaller groups, AR 11036 and 11037 as well. Since the seeing was not good (Caliraya has a good transparency most of the time though) , I was only able to image the Sun in whole disk not in high resolution :( Anyway, there will be more sunspots coming as the start of Solar Maximum will nearing.
