Sunspot photography on April 21st, 2018

Even though we’re approaching the minimum of the current solar cycle, occasional sunspots still appear. The image was taken on 21st of April, 2018 using a Skyris 132M Camera using Baader Solar Continuum filter through an Edge HD 8”. This was the best shot out of a serious of 35 captures taken with FireCapture and stacked with AutoStakkert. Final touch ups (I had some dust on the sensor) where done with GIMP.


A lot of gear on the balcony


A bunch of accessories and the laptop running FireCapture (Windows sadly)
