Given the conditions it's a great result - i'm glad you did post it. Not seen any sun at all here today, although looks to have brightened up a bit now it's dusk...

Great disc, thanks for braving the weather for us! I managed a very quick 10 minutes through the PST at lunchtime but was nearly blown away and rain was falling within minutes.

Regards
Alexandra
