My year in review
Here are a few of my images taken during 2015
I think I showed great restraint not to fill the whole image full of Suns :)

Sunspot and prominences on today's Sun
A new Sunspot 2625 has arrived. A C3.8 flare also occurred today and seem to be produced by a region behind this sunspot.

+Tuhin Chakraborty It is a flare with rate C3.8, this is a classification of power of solar flares. from A,B,C,M,X (most powerful), and from 1.0 to 9.9. Sorry for my bad english.

Holiday project complete, the dome is now a traditional white.
Green was ok when I was mainly doing night imaging, it would quickly cool down. Now for solar imaging, green was getting way too hot during the day effecting the image quality.

I've just posted a scathing rebuttal to +Cory Schmitz's recent pro-copyright article where he argues for watermarks and laments the appropriation of his astro photos. I argue the opposite and encourage you to ditch your copyright, and your watermark, and release your astrophotography in the public domain!
