Sunspot Group 12674 – September 1, 2017

This is my first go at sunspots since completing the the observatory. Sunspot Group 12674 was captured using a piggyback setup on my main telescope (Meade 12” LX90). Happy with the results this far, technical details below.

Tech Specs: Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM + Canon 2x Extender III + ZWO ASI290MC camera piggyback mounted on a Meade 12” LX90 telescope on a Celestron CGEM-DX mount. Best 50% of 5000 frames collected using SharpCap v3.0 and AutoStakkert! V3.0.14 (x64). A 77mm Thousand Oaks Optical Solar Filter was on the business end of the lens. Date: September 1, 2017.
