Sunspot AR2529 – Departing shot – April 18, 2016
Goodbye 2529! This is perhaps my last shot of 2529, at least for this rotation. The seeing was poor most of the time. Luckily I’ve managed to find a few hundred frames that showed the granulation and details inside the penumbra rather well.
Look at the happy face appearance of the spot, it changed from a heart-shape to a smiley:) This was imaged with a filtered 8 inch scope (200mm, F/5 Newtonian) and ASI 174MM camera with a Red filter.
