Easter Sunday Sunshine 20th April

The weather forecast for sunday was to go rapidly downhill and so I decided to get up just after sunrise and try to beat the incoming rain.  It wasn't until a few hours after sunrise that there was a clear spell that was worth getting the scope out for, but i'm glad I persevered as the sun was putting on a great show this easter sunday, almost overnight the proms have appeared all round the solar limb.  This image was taken with the coronado DS40 at f10 and the DMK31 camera.  After I took these images the rest of the day settled with gale force winds and rain, hopefully overnight it will all blow over and Easter Monday will give me some chances to get some more observations in.
