This chapter focuses on the resumption of the conflict between Christoph Scheiner and Galileo in relation to their sunspot studies the period from 1630 to 1632. Scheiner sent letters and copies of his works about sunspots and solar system Disquisitiones mathematicae de controversis et novitatibus astronomicis and Sol Ellipticus to Galileo to which the latter did not respond. This chapter also discusses Scheiner's reaction of Galileo's Dialogue and the personal comments of Galileo on Scheiner and Rosa Ursina in his letter to a consultor Venetian senator.
