Sunspot 1944 - 9 January 2014

Past two days grounded me and my telescope and we could not image the sun. But today was very different.. good seeing, no clouds, no fog, just me and my telescope and our love, the Sun in the sky.

Sunspot 1944 is nearing the limb now and soon will vanish from our sight. Following is the composite of two images.

I have also taken many many videos of this region for my third animation of this area.. But you will have to wait on this one.. its a huge data and will take so many hours for completion. Meanwhile enjoy this beauty.
