20090706 Sun

We finally got sunshine again! I have been longing to shoot AR1024 but no chance... It seems very promising from the images that I have seen, but today, I found that it's rather disappointing, since despite it's feature rich and complex, it's still small! I really hope that there will be some active regions such that I will need to use a reducer rather than a 5x to shoot.

1539 (GMT+8), can you hear the cracking sound out there? ;-)

1546 (GMT+8), it's changing, detectable even in several minutes:-

A good day, but I really hope there's something bigger coming!
