Todays Sun - seeing slightly better than it has been but still poor!  AR2621 is not easy to spot on my image but it is there if you know where to look  ;)  !

A Hazy Sun

A very low Sun with quite a bit of haze about so I had to go to 1/640 sec at ISO 100 (normally 1/2000 or shorter!).  Sorry about the dust bunnies - i've cleaned the sensor ready for next time:

Sunday 9 October Sun

It took a couple of patient hours to get these - waiting for gaps in the clouds to pass overhead and allow any imaging at all:
