A hazy Sun

Finally found a break in today's clouds large enough to get  an image!  Still very hazy which didn't help:

A very late-in-the-day Sun

A tiny gap in the clouds as the Sun dropped over the observatory wall - just enough to get 200 frames and stack 26 to get this:

A quick Sun through a break in the clouds!

Just a small break in the clouds when I got in from work - followed by a thunderstorm!

Quite a show on the Sun at the moment!

Quite spectacular as this is supposed to be the solar minimum!

A very cloudy day!

Just about managed to get 17 frames today – and stacked 9 of them to get this (I usually do about 40 from 200!!):

Gone Fishin’ again

Or rather have been fishing – one decent Carp of about 11lb 4oz (and a few tiddlers!):

An impressive sunspot group!

Slightly hazy this morning but the atmosphere was quite steady for once.  ED120APO / Canon 1100D / Baader filter, 44/150 single frames stacked for the full disc.  ASI120mm camera / 2.5x Powermate and 64/3000 frames for the close up.
