Broken clouds this morning and some equipment problems made me to have to short cut my session.  Today only WL and Ha images.  AR2810 remains stable and is nicely visible at 200 millionths. A small prom can also be seen at the SE limb.

Clear skies this morning with average seeing.  The region I imaged in the Southern hemisphere in CaK on the 10th, was named AR2809 yesterday morning, but it was short lived as it decayed already to a plage.  AR2808 decayed also a bit in the leading spot, so for most solar activity is Very Low.  Today full disk images and close ups in the three wavelengths.

Clear skies, but the seeing was poor.  Earlier in the day, AR2808 did produce a C1 class flare raising the Solar activity to Low.  Close-up images today of AR2808 and the plage/faculae of AR2807.  I realized during my CaK imaging that some new pores/spots might have evolved, but yet un-named in the plage visible in the SE quadrant.  So only a close-up of this area in CaK.

Clear skies this morning.  AR2806 has decayed to a plage just before it turns to the far-side of the Sun, and AR2807 has reemerged but it is barely visible.  A new area has rotated in view and is visible near the NE limb.  The area was named AR2808 this morning and the Wilson effect is very nicely visible in the 540nm close up image.  Full disk images today as well as close ups of the regions of interest.

Clear skies with average seeing conditions.  Although AR2806 remains the only area containing spots, a number of other plages can be observed, as well as a number of prominences.  So today, in addition to the full disk images, close ups of some proms and a filaprom at the SE limb as well as the plages visible in Ha and CaK.

Clear skies with below average seeing.  Today we see that AR2806, which disappeared for one day, has re-emerged.  I did not see AR2807 in 540nm, but the plage is well noticeable in Ha and CaK, as well as the plage of the area near the NE limb. Full disk images today with close ups of the mentioned areas.

Clear skies this morning!  Both Regions continued to decay to the point where AR2806 became a plage.  An interesting observation can be seen in the full disk Ha image at the NE limb, where some very small flaring shows against the background at the limb of the disk. Fort he rest, the Sun’s solar activity remains Very Low.

Clear skies with good seeing this morning.  Both AR2806 and AR2807 did not show any activity so solar activity levels are back to Very Low.  Both regions are also decaying some more.  The nice thing to report was a number of prominences around the solar disk in the full disk Ha image.

Clear skies this morning for a change.  After a spotless day, yesterday, we have again two active regions in the Southern hemisphere AR2806 and AR2807.  They cover an area of 10 and 20 millionths and have a total spot count of 8.  In addition, a nice filament is seen in the Northern hemisphere.  Full disk images today and close ups of the mentioned areas in the three wavelengths.

Clear skies this morning with mostly average seeing.  The leading spot from AR2804 has increased a little while the trailing spots did decay some.  AR2805 ha continued its decay.  Today full disk images as well as close ups of AR2804 and AR2805 in the three wavelengths, as well as the plage AR2803 in Ha and CaK.
