Nice catch Charl. It's a bit worrying having that thing pointing straight at us

Great pictures. What would you say the size of that thing is compared to the Earth?  About the same??   The inner darker area looks similar to Mercury transit pictures.

thanks Peter ,its many times bigger than the earth, how many im not sure but maybe between 6 to 10 bigger,thats a guess. clear skys charl.

Of course I'm comparing it to the size of mercury from its 50 odd million kms from the sun!  Imagine the size of the transit images shrinking as it goes nearer to the suns surface until it is right next to it, if you know what I mean?  It would be like a pin prick. Amazing, and to think of the size of some stars out there.

Excellent work, Charl.  Certainly worth the wait.  Great detail around 2546.

Thanks for the share and for sticking it out for a hole in the clouds.

      no 44 of the year I'm 12 behind last year.  qwick 17 frames shot through relentless cloud just to show I'm still paying attention. I havnt given up yet so will update if I get better but it don't look promising.
      one small spot on show but there are 4 small pores trailing off towards the oncoming limb which I havnt picked up with the camera but could see in the vis.
      same old kit. thanks for looking and I hope you have better skys than me.   charl.
