Its getting difficult to image the Sun in my back garden. Up here at 55N, the Sun doesn’t get too high in the winter and trees, neighbours’ houses and other obstacles become more of a problem. At the moment, I run out of light at about 1430 UT.
These were taken around 1300 UT with two telescopes. The full disc false colour Sun was taken with a 480/80mm refractor and the close-up with a 1000/102mm refractor plus 2.5xBarlow lens.
The close-up is of AR2209 which is at around 9 o clock on the full disc image. This is actually monster sunspot AR 2192 back again after traversing the farside.
