Sunspots are back

After a while with a mostly spotless sun earlier this month, several groups of sunspots are forming.
I took this photo on Saturday April 21st before the clouds closed in.

Sunspots seen though telescope with Kendel solar filter

I took this photo with my Canon XS attached to the telescope (‘prime focus’) 1/250 seconds ISO 400. The telescope is my old 60mm Orion refractor. The old mount is a bit wobbly, making a steady photo a challenge.
Make sure you use a good solar filter before observing the sun through a telescope or binoculars!
