After the "spotty" sunrise on 1st March, I waited for the sunset on early morning of 4th March. Two groups of sunspots are visible now: #1164 and #1166. #1167 is only visible in the third image, when the sun rose higher above the horizon. And what could that be in the third image? It's a rotor of a wind generator. Unfortunately sun did not the favour of rising exactly behind the generator. I used my 1D Mark IV fixed on a Vixen 80L refractor with a focal length of 1200 mm.
