My 6" H-a objective was heavily dewed over. Must cover it overnight.

The mounting and instruments were spotted all over with frost.

Not so clear of cloud today. Starting at 23F [-5C] Lots of high, thin cloud getting steadily worse.

Prominences between one and two o'clock [inverted image.]

Yesterday's spot group has rearranged itself.

Visible in both white light and H-alpha at about 8 o'clock.

1/3 radius from edge of solar disk.

What a shame, Dave.

There is unlikely to be much to see on the surface as we descend into a minimum. 

The thin, high cloud is getting steadily worse here.

Here's a snap I took earlier through a 32mm EP in my 180/12 using my TZ7.

A better image of the spot group:

An afocal 'snap' taken at the 32mm EP in the 7" using a short zoom Canon IXUS 117 HS.

Looks like AR will have gone round the edge before I get to see it, looking on satellite weather it looks very nice in France.
