A Blank Sun on Saturday - 17th February

After the excitement of the recent active region (ar12699) the sun has returned to a blank and quiet state more typical of our star as it descends into solar minimum.  There were some small proms and a few small hints of filaments, but, on the whole that was it for old yellow face. This shot was taken with a double stacked Lunt50 scope and a PGR Chameleon 3 camera.  Hopefully we'll get a bit more activity in the days ahead!
