I finally managed a couple of images today.  The sky was a bit hazy, but I expected better images then the ones I got today.  I am posting them even though they don't compare to Mike's great full disk image.  :-)

Lower west limb. 

West limb middle area - AR2501.

East limb, middle area.  The feature in the center wasn't labeled.

Mike and I will be trying to get good image every clear day.  it is very obvious that we are into the next solar minimum.

A return of the Sun

 So I guess this will kick off the 2016 image season for Bill and I . The temperature was -5c so just a quick disk to start 2016 .
