20090116 Sun

Seeing 3/10, transparency 7/10. My Borg 45ED II based setup. AR1010 is about to disappear, nothing special on the solar disc. A small but feature rich prominence is there.

1224 (GMT+8), with 2x barlows:-

1226 (GMT+8), with 2x barlows:-

Visual observation rendered a nearly featureless disk, but binoviewer brings out the detail, the area around AR1010 is very nice and nearly 3 dimensional, that small prominence is very great in the eyepiece, very fine detail can be seen.
