The SUN - 10th July

Post by Cliff »

Cloudy morning with the odd occasional shower of rain. Early evening there was a break in the clouds allowing me to get a few video clips of the Sun using my Opticstar PL-131m video camera on my 88mm refractor through our West facing backroom window. I only got one 17 second video clip with no obvious cloud interference - image processed in Registax V5 and Corel PSP. NO Sunspots detected.
Best of luck from Cliff

Cliff you have actually got a hint of new spot right on the limb at 10 o'clock in your image. I did see three other little spots in the faculae group (at 8 o'clock) when I projected the Sun earlier in the afternoon. Regards, Bob

Many thanks - cloudy here yesterday but yes I imaged the Sun again 13th and detected a decent Sunspot which helps confirm what you say about 10th July image possibly showing that Sunspot. Incidentally my 10th July comment were not meant to say me not detecting any Sunspots was ultimate & definitive. My Sun imaging tackle & techniques are not the best in the world ( but as it suggest it looks like my 10th image did pick up that Sunspot).
Best wishes from Cliff
