Today: my first visual observations of the sun (apart from the odd accidental naked eye glance, of course!) - and my first images. From top to bottom, these are sunspot groups 2673, 2674 and 2679. Solar south is up.

David, you picked a good time to make your first solar observation and a nice image as well.
