25 August Sun

I took over 550 single frames to get this today - I then manually rejected over 400 of them as they had more or less clouds all over them - the wind was strong so clouds kept blowing past the Sun and I only got 2-3 "clean" frames in each gap between them!!  Anyway - the final stack was 45 frames from 139  in PIPP/Registax 5.  Then PS for finishing.

The skies cleared a little bit later on and I was able to get a few 3000 frame .avi's (at 100+fps so about 30seconds to get each one) with a 2.5x Powermate for the rather ropey close-up of AR2403:

Clear skies again and quite a bit of development happening with AR 2403:  Full disc is 34/128 frames stacked.  Close-ups are 32 from 5000 frames (both with and without a 2.5x Powermate):

A day’s fishing

A cloudy but pleasant days fishing at Park Farm Hockering.  Went on the “top” lake today as there was a match on the more often used “bottom” lake.  Caught quite a few smaller stuff but capped the day with this 12lb Carp:
