White caps on the bay!!
Blowing a gale.....
Unnamed AR and sunspot (!!!) easily visible in CaK.
Unfortunately NR and cable problems while trying Ha.
Tuning not ideal for the AR, but I've cropped the disk to make it a lttle easier to see.

No time to image proms.....
No chance to do a white light, but I'd assume the spot would be visible.

High latitude and polarity put it in cycle 25. Excellent find. Thanks for posting.

Looks like it should be visible in White Light Ken, I'm going to try to find a break in the cloud today to have a peek.

Quite blowy here to Ken, but have managed to find a clear spell and got setup. Seeing is pretty awful but in White Light I can see two larger spots and three smaller in a line. Very dodgy phone shot attached!

Just had a final look before the sun went behind the houses and could that it has already evolved quite alot. One of the larger spots is now larger and more complex, and there are around 10 smaller pores scatter nearby, up from only 3 this morning. Well worth keeping an eye on. Seeing was dreadful again, shimmering away like crazy!
