A Spotless Sun

The first chance to see the Sun for a fortnight!  Clear blue skies and steady seeing early(ish) this morning.  A stack from 128 frames taken.  A spotless Sun.

Another fishing expedition

Dead calm today after several days of cloud and thunderstorms:

Park farm 4

First fish was this decent 9 pounder (followed by quite a few others of various smaller sizes) – That’s the toe of by boot at the bottom for size::

A bit of progress on the model ship:

END 15END 17END 18END 19END 24END 25END 29END 21END 23END 30

The frames have been assembled and balsa wood blocks shaped and fitted between them – this should give a good solid base on which to start applying the miniature planking.  All a bit rough at this stage but a smooth hull form is beginning to emerge.  The hull is about 20” long and 5” wide.

A “Spotless” Sun

My first Sun image for a fortnight and I've been home for most of that!!  I think this is my first totally "blank" disc since I started in 2009.
