AR11511 Through The Haze...

Following another storm system that has rattled through the UK, saturday morning dawned blustery with rapidly moving clouds at lower levels and a much slower moving band of higher haze / cirrusy stuff. Normally wouldn't even bother in such conditions, but have had such little opportunity to observe lately due to poor weather that decided just to setup and see what I got. The sun is ridiculously quiet at the minute, with the only area of activity on the disk an insignificant small active region AR11511. The haze made it difficult to focus and looking the pic my tuning could have been a little better to get more even across the frame. Still better than nothing!
