Mark says: “I heard news of de­vel­op­ing sunspots mov­ing across the Sun’s disc. Work­ing full time I rarely get the op­por­tu­nity to im­age the Sun dur­ing the week, but I got lucky with cloud gaps around lunchtime! I was sat­is­fied with the level of de­tail, although I learnt I should re­ally cap­ture some flats to help with re­mov­ing dust and shad­ows.”

Equip­ment: Al­tair Astro Hyper­cam IMX174 mono cam­era, Al­tair Astro Star­wave 102 ED re­frac­tor, Sky-Watcher AZ-EQ6 GT mount, Daystar Quark chro­mo­sphere fil­ter.
