It has been a while since I looked at the Sun through a telescope. This mildly-warm Spring day with few clouds seemed like the perfect opportunity to see what the fireball in the sky was up to.
This was a somewhat rush job, as technically I needed to get back to my job. But all in all in turned out ok, I think. I could see two extremely small sunspots together in the upper quadrant. If you look at the full-sized image, you may be able to find them as a small black smudge.
