DescriptionWell, it's December and 2013 is right around the corner. I just love doing full disk images, so I thought, hey, wouldn't it be nice to do an annual summary of full disk images??????? To show the diversity of my instrumentation I would include images taken in white light, Calcium K and Hydrogen Alpha frequencies. Of course, I would have to include special events images like the Venus Transit and the Annular Eclipse. Oh, and images shot with the CCD camera as well as with the DSLR, telescopic images and camera lens images. So, with all that said here's my SOLARACTIVITIY Tribute to 2012. It WAS a very good year!
