CaK Full Disk & Proms 22nd November

Finally some sunshine on a weekend when I have some free time!  The sun is low this time of year, and looking across the city skyline hops between the rooftops and trees, fortunately when the blue skies appeared the sun was in a gap.  It is nice to catch the big spot on its second rotation before it departed, maybe it will make a 3rd?  The sky broke to really transparent deep blue skies as the weather front passed over, and as a result the proms were really easy to see at 393nm.  The shot was taken with the 40mm scope at 560mm focal length with the DMK31 camera and homebrew CaK filter.
