The Sun 12-10-08 – Active Region 11005 !

Superb and unexpected day of clear skies and sun practically all day. A new active region (11005) which appeared yesterday is putting on a real show with large sunspots and small pores plus plenty of plage detail in the CaK views. Ha shows a nice sprawling set of fibrils and flux around the sunpsot group. I also managed a first light with the Intes solar wedge today mounted on the Vixen FL 115s refractor. Filters used on the wedge included the ND3, Solar Continuum and UV/IR block. This gave a pleasant apple green tone to the view (largely courtesy of the continuum filter) but the detail in the sunspot group really popped out and granulation was very clear – cannot wait to image in white light with this setup!
