Equinox sunspots appear! This afternoon I took my Clestron C8 telescope to image the new sunspot on the southern rim. I couldn't believe my eyes when I discovered two other small sunspots at the northern hemisphere of the sun. First I thought of dust in telescope, but they are real! Picture taken with Nikon D300 1/1000 sec at 200 iso.
