Solar Viewing - March 28, 2010

The Sun is becoming more and more active as the next sunspot maximum heats up.  Today I used the 60mm H alpha telescope to view a couple of sunspot groups and a spectacular prominence on the limb.  Below is a stacked image of some 868 frames taken with a ToUcam using K3CCDtools and processed with Registax.

Below are some images of my setup.  Note the elegant means to view the laptop screen in the bright sunlight!
