Hi Steve

Thats a great photo, it look's really affective with that cloud cover over the Sun, you should be pleased with that.

Though I'v no doubt you would have preffered a cleare shot.

Till later

Steve,
Just been reading on the BBC and they're asking for people to send in their pics!?!?!

Unless you've already sent it in that is?

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"

HI All,
Great image Steve,got fine veiws here,well chuffed ,it partly makes up for the crumby conditions I had to endure during last Octobers eclipse and the transit of Venus.The occasion was made better with some fine sunspots.
Regards Les.

Great Morning with the weather here in Norfolk but my solar filter did not arrive in time so I had to project an image and take some photo's. I've put one in the Photo Album. Not to good but best I could do as I was at work as well !!!!

Nice one Steve, well caught.

I think the passing cloud adds a bit of drama to the image, "how lucky was I to catch this one"

Well done

Dave

It was cloudy all morning here and I'd almost given up hope of seeing anything,then it cleared and I managed to see and photograph it.I grabbed the most portable telescope I have,which is a 30x50 spotting scope,attached it to a photo tripod and projected the image onto a piece of card and took the photos off that,easy peasy.

HI Andrew,[:)]
Great image,I've takan reasonable shots of sunspots using projection and a digital camera ,but try to get the camera as close as possible to the eyepiece to stop the Sun looking oval.
Regards Les.
