Observed object: Sun and sunspot group AR 2192
Time: 12:00 UT
Observing site: Kuusamo, Finland
Instrument: Canon EOS 1100D, 4” refractor
During couple of last weeks, a magnificent sunspot group, named AR 2192 was growing in the surface of the Sun. This sunspot group was largest in more than 20 years, and it was largest sunspot group during this sunspot cycle! This sunspot group was so large, that Earth could have been fitted ten times in the sunspot! I was also able to observe this sunspot, and I was also able to see it with naked eye (of course with proper solar filter)! When I was doing my observation, Sun was already at low altitude, and thus it was a little bit flattened and seeing was quite poor. I took this photo with Canon EOS 1100D DSRL and with 4” refractor.
