Sunspots Just Visible In This Image

Atmospheric conditions cleared up some this afternoon and I was able to capture the following image of the Sun. The sunspots can just be made out.

Below is an image of the Sun taken by GONG a little earlier. My image appears to be inverted.

The sunspots in the projected image appear to be a little clearer if the image is moving across the paper. This may be due to the graininess of the paper being less noticable in a moving image. I should also note that the objectives of the binoculars are 50mm lenses.
