    This is Simons picture taken though his own telescope showing the same sun spot. Pretty cool what a home gamer can do from his backyard in the suburbs.

    Beautiful sight!
    Cycle 25 sure is taking it's time but it's great to finally see some signs of life....

    I am not sure it actually works that way, but I like your thinking :)

    When I saw the thread title, I thought you discovered a ham who was manufacturing artificial sunspots to enhance propagation.
    That would be cool. DUH. I mean hot.

    Some of the amateur guys can take images almost on par with the best the professionals can. I am often amazed at what they can achieve with rather simple and cheap gear.
