It’s been sometime since I last made an image of the Sun so, I thought I’d dig out my Solar Filter and capture the Sun while it was still fairly low in the morning sky for this week’s Project 52 image.
There are two nice Sun Spots showing up in this image; one in each hemisphere. I’ll have to look at NOAA’s image and see how many they see with their bigger lens and better filter.
I had a nice surprise when I opened the Solar Filter’s box. I discovered the B+W ND Filter I’ve been looking for. I couldn’t remember where I put it, but knew I put it somewhere safe when I was boxing up the house to have new carpeting and flooring put in last October. I have been looking for this ND filter for months. I’m happy to have found it. I will use it next month when I return to Yosemite for my birthday hike.
