With the Solarscope I could still see active areas 875 and 876). Between them I counted 12 sunspots — that was down on yesterday's observation. Given that it was later in the afternoon and conditions weren't ideal I suspect that this might have been as much to do with the view I had as with anything else.

Using eclipse shades I was able to see the main spot in area 875, as a small black dot, with the naked eye.
