Sunspot 1035

According to Spaceweather.com, Sunspot 1035 is now 7 times wider than Earth and possibly the largest sunspot of 2009.

Because of my disrupted biological clock, I decided to wait for sunrise and conduct a solar observation.

This is my first time to observe and image a sunspot. I used projection method to safely view the Sun.

Equipment used: Edmund Scientific AstroScan Telescope and Canon EOS 450D

  1. Great projection shots of AR11035. Resolution though could be better if you use aperture solar filter
