I've been away from home for the last three weeks but got back just in time to catch 1035 before it slid arond the limb. Conditions were poor with low contrast due to heavy haze but at least I got to see this in person! The plage around the spots shows up nicely. On the other limb of the sun I caught a couple small pores trying to form up. DMK31 monochrome, 127mm Starmax mak-cas on an EQ3 mount. AR1035 - 925/1500 frames, new pores - 700/1500 frames.
