Scattered clouds with poor seeing today.  Another spotless sun day.  Did not see much except the filament in the NW.  I wonder what that will look like when it turns to the backside of the Sun.

Clear skies for another spotless Sun observing session.  This makes it spotless day 26 in the current spotless streak.  The filaments in the NW and the proms at the SW limb are still there. For the rest, the Sun seems to be quiet.

Clear skies for a change, but cold.  Another spotless Sun today. A few small proms were visible in Ha in the NE, and filaments in the NW quadrant.  A very small bi-polar area could be seen in the West in SDO’s magnetogram, and also in the CaK wavelenght, but it seemed to have Cycle 24 polarization.

After a week of clouds we get one day of clear skies.  Just to confirm that the Sun still is spotless for spotless day 682 since solar max.  A few small proms are visible in Ha at the NW and SW limbs.

Cold but clear.  Another spotless Sun today but an unsteady sky.  However, a nice prominence is visible in the SE and a small filament in the North.  Today full disk images in the three wavelengths and a close up of the prom.

After 6 days the clouds cleared up today late morning.  Another Spotless day.  However, some nice features were visible.  A nice filament split in three streaks near the SE limb.  The NW limb showed a nice prom, while the SW limb showed off with a nice filaprom.  Overall an interesting Sun.

Scattered clouds and lots of con-trails.  A spotless Sun again today.  The SM40 showed two small filaments in the southern hemisphere, and a few plages were visible through the CaK scope.

Clear skies with good seeing.  A spotless Sun  today.  These images are my last images for CR2226 which ends today at 1721 UT.   A few proms and two filaments were visible in Ha and a plage in the Southern hemisphere in CaK.  Today full disk images and close-ups of the filaments.
