Very spotty sunspots

The Sun with yellow filter.

It looks like we have have finally hit the sunspot maximum! These images were taken yesterday April 18th 2014. The poor thing looks like it has the measles!
Some nice images taken with my Skywatcher 80ED Pro, Baader solar safe filter and coloured filters. A lot of activity on the Sun at the moment, the Aurora has reached K6 tonight.

Sunspots today with the blue filter.
