The first image is orientated with the western side of the Sun to the bottom which shows AR2628 and the eastern side to the top right which shows AR2629; the second full disc image is in the correct orientation.
Both images were taken with my APO 127mm refractor telescope with a glass solar filter attached and using a Canon 700D camera, the first image had a 2x Barlow attached and the second image showing the full solar disc was at prime focus.
When you look in a dedicated solar telescope at the Sun in the H-alpha wavelength you can sometimes see so much more incredible detail.
This is what happened when I decide to take off the white light refractor and have a look at the Sun with my solar telescope…to my surprise and delight there on the eastern limb was a large wedge shape prominence firing away out into space, not that far away from the new sunspot group AR2629.
I wonder if this will happen again and we’ll have another new sunspot soon…
Images were taken with a Lunt 80mm solar telescope and a Canon 700d camera with a 2x Barlow lens; this is a composite image to capture the different exposures needed for the solar disc and the faint prominences. Exposures were 1/200th second and ISO200 for the solar disc and 1/15th second and ISO 200 for the prominences.
