I could say that this was rather strange. Despite the weather forecast, there were a couple of clear spells. Unfortunately, the first one did not last long enough to get my telescope outside but I left it assembled in the hope that I might get a second clear spell.



I had some false alarms but I had enough time to get a set of shots of the full disc at 1.54 metres focal length, ISO 100 and 1/500 second exposure. Some photos were ruined by cloud but I managed to stack five of them in Autostakkert and finished in GIMP. The result showed that, although I could capture sunspots in binoculars, I could get a much better result with a half decent telescope and decent camera.
