Slice of sunshine

Mosaic of 5 pics across solar equatorial region , plus proms. I may rework this to avoid the sloppy joins.

Sunny Good Friday

Busy afternoon . This is the Lunt scope with stacked 2.8x and 2x barlows. Seeing not great but seeing some detail. Region 1193 is an active flare forming region and may have more to come. Click on the prom for an animation.

Before the moon returns with a vengance I got a couple of shots on Friday night including this of NGC3227 and 3226 just to the east of gamma Leonis (see diffraction spike)
