Solar seeing was pretty terrible, a wavy mess. However, I took a LOT of photos. I wanted to test out using my DSLR at prime focus with the Baader Astrosolar white-light solar filter.
I managed to get some pretty nice shots of active regions AR1540, AR1538, and AR1532, some nice faculae (the white vein-looking things), and even surface granularity. I can’t wait for next time when the atmosphere cooperates. I added a little yellow false color, as they are normally black and white images through the filter.
