The Sun by Ken Pearson - October 2011

ETX90E telescope and my new Canon IXUS115HS digital camera. The camera has 12.1 Mega Pixels and the original file sizes were 9Mbits each. There was a thin vale of high cloud so the images are not pin sharp. Even so there are at least nine or more sun spots visible. It looks like solar maximum has arrived at last
