AR 11889 was visible once again without optical aid on Wednesday afternoon.
After I put my solar shades away, I managed to set up my 40mm f/10 Coranado PST with one hand and observed the large sunspot and two smaller ones (AR 11896 and AR 11903), along with a phage region, several filaments, and one fairly large prominence on the Sun's trailing limb using an 8-24mm Vixen zoom eyepiece set at 24, 16, 12, and 8mm.
Sic itur ad astra!
Chance favors the prepared mind.
A man is a small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders.
