Finally, Some Solar Activity!

Finally, after a couple of years of a virtually spotless sun, we seem to be seeing some significant activity.  This shot was taken in late September and closely approximates what could be seen through an eyepiece.  I used what has become my standard setup for photographing eclipses – a Nikon D700, 2x teleconverter, and Borg 4″ refractor.  43 frames out of 540 were combined to produce this shot.  A lot of images and processing are necessary to show what can easily be seen by the eye!  Click on the image for more details.

    Nice, well defined spots!
    I would like to have more details on processing.
    Thank you very much,
    Giuseppe Ornaghi
