Sunspot 1089 July 21/10 1500hrs POW

Solar Observing at POW at 1500hrs July 21/10.

Weather: Partly cloudy, 27 degrees Celsius, light wind.

Telescope: 150 mm reflector with 2x Barlow, 25mm and 9mm eyepieces.

Camera: Kodak C190 EasyShare with mount.

Observing: Sunspot 1087 was not visible through my scope, but according to it is still there but is decreasing.

Sunspot 1089 (The Bear Claw) was clearly visible as a triangle of dark spots. It was visible at low power and really showed up nice with the 2x Barlow and then with the 9 mm eyepiece. Apparently this one is suppose to change shapes in the coming days so it should be fun to keep track of.
