Sunspots

Alice says: “I wanted to cap­ture de­tail on the Sun us­ing my phone cam­era through the eyepiece, so I picked sunspot AR 2645 when it was clearly vis­i­ble. I am pleased the penum­brae are vis­i­ble in the fi­nal im­age. I was in­ter­ested to read the ar­ti­cle on the BBC Sky at Night Mag­a­zine web­site the next day about the flares from AR 2644, which I cap­tured in the edge of my im­age – a lucky co­in­ci­dence!”

Equip­ment: iPhone 5S, Orion SkyQuest XT6 PLUS Dob­so­nian tele­scope, Orion so­lar fil­ter.
