Fantastic images of the sunspots. Those smaller spots are dirt on your sensor, which you probably already know. A fine soft brush should get rid of them.
I use an 11" Celestron SCT (CPC 1100) on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 500D for imaging.

The Sun is easily the worst object for dust bunnies. I take multiple images and stack them.
