To start, I'll be frank: the practicalities of webcamming the Sun are much harder than the Moon but without using anything special to see the laptop screen, I was able to see a sunspot on the screen. OK it will be easier when(IF????) solar activity increases and there are larger sunspots and more of them. I also think I need a lot more practice to perfect the technique.

Notwithstanding that, I managed to capture a small sunspot near the one I captured.
