The sky this afternoon is partly cloudy and I had to wait more than 1 hour for some clearing for me to image the Sun in Ha wavelength since there are no more sunspot groups visible on the Sun's disk. Seeing condition is fair. There are several large prominences visible in the NE, SE and SW limb. The best of the 3 large prominence is the one in the SW limb. Remnant of AR2800 Sunspot Group an still be seen in Ha but none in white light wavelength. The other 2 large prominences are a bit faint to see and image.

The sky this evening is cloudy and I have to wait more than 45 minutes before I could get a clear shot of the Full Wolf Moon, the first full Moon of 2021 using Canon EOS M6 Mirrorless camera on Borg 76ED refractor mounted on Vixen Porta 2 mount. Exposure of 1/1000sec at ISO 100.

The sky this late afternoon is partly clear and I was able to image the Sun with both AR2797 and 2798 Sunspot Groups through Ha and white light wavelength. AR2797 and 2798 Sunspot Groups are very small and dull in white light but comes alive in Ha wavelength. Smaller AR2798 Sunspot Group shows bright flaring activity while AR2797 Sunspot Group ejects a long dark filament! I was also able to image white light full disk to show how small the 2 groups are.
