To get really sharp solar images you need very good skies, and on August 27 th 2014 the seeing conditions in Belgium were excellent.  Leo Aerts captured this nice image of a sunspot 2150 using his Celestron 14” SCT at full aperture.  The best result was at 8h47 UT and Leo used a red filter while seeing was very good for a short time.  Barlow 1.8x projection was used while recording was done with his DMK31AU03.
