The Sun – 7/24/08

Not much going on with the Sun these days, at least through white light. IT gave me a chance to re-try some Sun photos without sunspots so I know what is going on with my camera, eyepieces, etc. Here is two shots I got.

Sunspots 987 # 988 – 03/25/08

Here is Sunspots 988 & 989 from March 25, 2008. Again, as with the Sunspot 999 pictures, I adjusted the brightness, etc to bring the sunpots out more. With this picture, I had wonderful results. All four pictures are the same picture, just in different sizes. 1a being the largest, and 1d being the smallest. Again, for more information on these sunspots, check out and click on the archive tab, and select March 25, 2008.

Sunspot #999 – Revisited

I took these back on June 19, 2008. Adjusted the contrast, etc to bring out the Sunspot a little better
. Keep in mind, this spot was tiny! For more info on this sunspot, refer to and then click the archive tab and select June 19, 2008.

More Constellations – Sprewell Bluff – Thomaston, GA (07/01/08)

Here is some more pictures from July 1 when I was out at Sprewell Bluff. In this batch, I have one of my favorite constellations – Coma Berenices, as well as one of my more favorite shots of late, Saturn, Mars and Regulus. Also included are some of Cygnus, Lyra and more.

Again, all pictures taken with the same specifications as mentioned in previous posts.
