A Naked-Eye Sunspot and More H-Alpha Observing, 1/9/14
Posted by DaveMitsky on Friday, January 10, 2014 10:38 PM

Seeing AR1944 was a cinch yesterday afternoon through my black polymer solar eclipse shades.

AR1944 and other active regions, along with a number of filaments and prominences were visible using my Coronado PST H-alpha scope and 8-24mm Vixen zoom eyepiece.
