Sunspot 1054

Thanks to Robin, I've borrowed his Coronado PST solar telescope and mylar white light filter.

I couldn't resist a quick photo through the white light filter when the sun peeked through the clouds this afternoon.

Unfortunately I couldn't get a decent image through the h-alpha PST scope, although visually I could see some small prominences around the limb. Really great - first time for me.
