Sundays Whitelights - 13th April

Seeing conditions were awful today, despite some great transparency, and I simply could not get any decent results with the Baader continuum filter, so I decided to drop down in the wavelengths and use the near infra red 705nm TiO2 filter.  This worked a treat and allowed me to get some images in.  The full disk was taken with the 40mm @ f10, whereas the closeups were taken with the 100mm @ f20, all with the DMK31 camera and Lunt solar wedge.  There is an interesting few spots to go at the moment, hopefully the seeing conditions will be better tomorrow.
