This is my favourite image from todays run, despite so little going on detail wise it just had a certain photographic lure. The seeing conditions were just starting to allow me to see the spicules on the solar limb. With better conditions the 127mm aperture should resolve considerable smaller features. This was imaged at 1900mm focal length using a DMK31 CCD camera.
