Sunspots

These are among my first images with my Celestron Neximage 5 planetary camera. I made a beginner's mistake with output resolution that reduced the image quality, but seeing was good for daytime. Sunspot 1711, being on the very edge of the sun, had not even been numbered at the time.

my back yard; March 30, 11:00 - 11:30 AM, ; T=+5 C, seeing unknown. Celestron NI5 on 150mm with 2X Powermate; Baader solar filter. Stack of 245 images (best 15% of video frames, 2 minute exposure).
