"Here comes the Sun"

I've posted a copy of the slides which Keith and I presented last night in our Members Area, under Workshops..Astro imaging.
But I can't guarantee that the Sun will come out just as you finish looking at them, as it did for us last night! 8-)

I've been looking at the HelioViewer website that shows up to date images of the sun.

Click on the triangle under the word "Images" in the left column and more options will appear. You can choose different observatories and instruments. For example, choose "SDO" and "HMI" and you can see the 2 sunspots we saw last night.

Choose "Add" and you can overlay multiple images. You can alter the opacity to bring out the detail.

There is also a movie option.
