Remarkable animations, Simon.
Looking at the spicule fringe, your seeing conditions must have been excellent.

My biggest enemy was actually heat! We hit 100º or so (38ºC) which was causing all sorts of havoc on the computer. Need to figure a way to cool stuff down, not to mention thermals get really bad. You can see towards the end of the animation how the focus starts to split on the LS60THa.

I know what you mean, Simon. I am at 36C right now. I did not even bother setting a scope up and got on Slooh while in the cool instead. It has been mostly cloudy today so far anyway but it sure has not held the temperatures down!
