Nice images there David! Clear here too but circumstances meant I couldn't get out to observe. I did take the opportunity to see how the sun was getting higher in the sky, not too long now before it clears the trees on my southern horizon.

Fantastic shots David :bow I managed a view today too and that little new active region in the east was a treat, I thought I was going to get a blank disc.

However, it did take 5 minutes to load all these pics, is it possible to link all your images from Flickr?

Lovely round disk, David :). I wish I’d have gone straight to CaK. I chose Ha instead and really struggled with my Lunt60. Maybe it was the cold, but before I could get on band (tried for ages) the clouds rolled in and I ran out of time.

Nice proms too.
