Just in case you're not interested in Mercury: ;)

Lovely proms at 2, 4, 8 and 10 o'clock. :thumbsup:

I just need some guy lines to stop the telescopes blowing about. :icon_compress:

It has clouded over here now but the sun is still just visible at 12:20. 

I have plenty of prom captures to get on with but it's not the same. :sad2:

"Thick" is the only technical term I need for today's cloud. :icon_geek:

The sun keeps teasing with brief brightness.
Though I couldn't even define the limb in the H-a 6" during one of these "flashes."

We have about 50% cloud cover at the moment, but the wind is gusting up to about 40mph according to the forecast :(

Tell me about it!

42F and I'm frozen in the dome even with only a small gap to peak out through the shutters.

Enjoying early lunch. With the sun shining on the dome now. :rolleyes:

Marvellous!  The wind is from the west.  To the north I see mostly clear sky at the moment.  To the south it is absolutely solid cloud that looks as though the heavens are going to open at any moment.

Sleet, hail and low cloud scudding over us at incredible speeds. Thank goodness for Slooh!

I'm capturing 500 frame videos during gaps.

No chance in H-a.

All me own werk, Guv! ;)

A frustrating afternoon trying to capture 500 frame videos with the 90mm Vixen f/11 and the 180/12 iStar. ASI120 & 174 respectively.
I was using the SharpCap gain and exposure sliders constantly as the cloud streamed across the sun.
Mostly just gaps in the clouds with the solar surface detail only becoming visible before complete overcast.
Registax keeps crashing on Alignment so this is a rare effort in AS!3. 
I still don't know how to use it properly and can never find the stills afterwards! :icon_rolleyes:
