3rd October 2012 AstroPhoMo (Astro Photo Month)

More solar images today.  I managed to catch the full rim using an Olympus 5 MP Compact digital.

The two pics here are at different filter settings.  The first is adjusted to enhance the granularity and surface detail on the sun including sunspots and filaments.

The second is adjusted to enhance activity on the limb showing solar flare activity.  You can just make out some activity at the bottom at 5 and 7 o'clock.
