Sunspot Telescope

Telescope showing the solar photosphere.

The sunspot telescope is a Celestron C-5  0.20-m cm Telescope equipped with a white light solar filter designed to see sunspots.  Attached to this telescope is an ImageSource DMK 41AU02.AS monochrome CCD with 1280 x 960 pixels.  

The image was taken within the past 2 minutes and is updated every 1 minute as long as the telescope is active.

The telescope will not be active in cloudy skies or during rain or at night. When the camera and telescope are not taking data, then you see a blank image.
