Fingers crossed for you all. I could not find camera lens which has been covered in Baader film - Drat!. So its a live feed for me, plus I hope some images on here!

Was nice and clear but cloudy now. Actually out working anyway but have the option to quickly grab bins and filter to pull over on side of road. Not looking good though.

Totally cloudy in Leeds.. and I've not been tempted to bring a scope to work either..

Is there a live feed link anyone cares to share, so those of us under the perma cloud can at least watch?

Good luck if your venturing out... Someone somewhere must be in with a chance!

We are staying local too, looks like we should see something at least near Esher. On my way now.

Lots of cloud cover here but also some clear spots here and there. I'm hopeful of seeing something of the transit at least but it will be a case of grabbing short views rather than lengthy observation.

No rain currently at least.

Good luck @Stu.. just had a look outside, irrespective of the cloud, the wind is blowing a gust, the F11 would be all over even on the skytee..

will just have to watch and wait for the images, and be annoyed for not replacing my little frac after I sold it!

Just remembered, If it applies and you're on eq, don't forget the meridian flip. We're gonna start west.

I'm just trying to dig out everything I need to connect my 600d to my 200p that hasn't been used in a very long time.

Anyone know where should we be looking as it moves onto the sun?

The dslr is more or less vertical. On a refractor, I think were inverted...

Guessing about 10 o'clock.

My colleagues at Bedford AS are getting some good views apparently!

Head to Bedford School Observatory on Pemberely Avenue if you are in the area!

Sun gods smiled just long enough to get a great view here. Fantastic. Hope everyone gets at least a few minutes of clear sky
