Again having to shoot through gaps in the clouds - ran off 260 frames and stacked 43 of them.  ED120APO, Canon 1100D, Baader Solar film, ISO 100, 1/3200 sec exposure.  Processed in PIPP, Registax5, Photoshop (including false colouration).

Clear blue skies to start with today - it's now clouded over!  And it's more or less goodbye to AR2339 - it may be back again....We shall have to wait and see.
