Wow, very foggy skies which burned off after 2 hours.  A spotless Sun today.  The small plage at the Eastern limb which just could be seen in yesterday’s CaK image shows today in Ha, CaK, and even as a faculae in the visible light close up.  Today is day 25 in the current streak.  Although this area is at another latitude than the previous two spots, the previous two rotations showed spots after respective 28 and 25 days.  Will be monitoring closely to see if we get another spot.  Today also closeups of the region mentioned, the prominences at the SW and NW limbs and the filaments as well.

It took a while for the clouds to disperse this morning, so I imaged through a number of holes in the clouds.  Another spotless day for the Sun for spotless day 588 since solar maximum, and day 24 for the current spotless streak.  A few faint filaments in the Northern hemisphere and a prom at the NW and SW limb.

Clear skies, but the seeing was poor.  Another spotless day.  Not much to see on the Sun with the decreased seeing conditions.  The current spotless streak stands at 21 days.  the two previous streaks were 28 and 25 days, interrupted only by a short 2 day region, so we are looking if this will repeat or if we are in for a longer streak this time around.

Clear skies with good seeing today.  Another spotless day.  However, the filament in the NW and fainter one in the SW are still visible in Ha.  Solar activity remains Very Low.

A break in the clouds with poor seeing today.  Another spotless day for the Sun. However a few small proms at the Eastern limb and a few filaments in the SE and North.  Three full disk images in the normal wavelengths.

Today’s session was not good.  I had to image through some clouds which impacted the images, especially the CaK. This resulted in the fact that some artifacts might show.   Another spotless day.  A good sized prominence could be observed at the SE limb, and the NW limb showed some smaller and fainter proms.

Patches of clear skies, with good seeing, allowed a good observing session.  The Sun is spotless today but a few faint proms are visible and a nice filament can easily be made out near the NE limb in Ha.  Today full disk images in the three wavelengths.

Another spotless day with Very Low solar activity.  The filament in the NW remains, and is starting to approach the NW limb.
