Sunspot image from Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope A new Swedish telescope has taken the sharpest images to date of the Sun, astronomers announced this week. In a paper published in the latest issue of the journal Nature, scientists released the first images taken by the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope on La Palma in the Canary Islands.
