Canon EOS M100
Moon: 90mm Mak-Cas at 40x
Sun: Coronado P. S. T. at 19x
Images re-sized (Moon reduced, Sun Enlarged)
Images captured when the Sun was 20° above the Eastern horizon and the Moon was 20° above the Western horizon.
On any Lunar maps or images where North is at the top, the Eastern limb is the one on the right.
On Solar maps or images oriented such that North is up, the Eastern limb is the one on the left. Why? Long story.
Note the bright region near the centre of the Solar image. These are "hot spots". This one looks like an "A" at high mag thru the scope.
Thru a standard solar filter (white light) I could find no sunspots or "plage" in this region. This has not yet been assigned an AR number.
