The image above was taken with a Canon DSLR camera with 600mm lens, tripod mounted.
The Sun is still seemingly entrenched in its solar minimum, as evidenced by this image.
However, there is still solar activity and sunspots do still occur during solar minimum.
According to Space Weather at the time of writing, the sun has been spotless for the last twelve days:
Current Stretch: 12 days
2019 total: 156 days (68%)
2018 total: 221 days (61%)
2017 total: 104 days (28%)
2016 total: 32 days (9%)
2015 total: 0 days (0%)
2014 total: 1 day (<1%)
2013 total: 0 days (0%)
2012 total: 0 days (0%)
2011 total: 2 days (<1%)
2010 total: 51 days (14%)
So solar max was about 2013 and on past practice, we might expect solar activity to begin picking up slightly by next year and head for a new solar max in approx 2024. Or maybe not.
The angular diameter of the Sun when this image was taken was 31.6 arc-min.
The setup is shown in the next image:
Below is the feature image at reduced size, to compare performance with the image lower down the page using the smaller lens which I have normally used previously when solar imaging without a telescope:

Here is the image taken with my older and smaller lens:

The solar filter in its box. I hand held it in front of the camera lens while the lens cap was removed:
To end with, here is the current sunspot cycle progression graph as published by NOAA/SWPC, which is predicting an extended minimum:
