Sunspot region AR0069 imaged on 17-Aug-2002 with
an 8" Mak-Newt and Nikon CP995 direct-coupled to
a 9mm Nagler EP using a full-aperture
Kendrick/Baader filter. The high temperature,
humidity, and cirrus cloud activity made capturing it a
challenge. The inset is the pick of the litter of 400+
shots, and was  processed with Images Plus and
Adobe PhotoShop.
