The sun on February 13--Part II
Even when it is quiet, the sun is a maelstrom of activity. This inverted image was captured with a PSTDS yesterday. I followed the workflow described in an earlier post to produce the final image. Poor seeing masked a lot of the detail, but the image does give a sense of the awesome power of the sun, even when it is not highly active.
