I didn't think I would get any views in this December at all, the weather hasn't been great and coupled with the low sun and trees on the southern horizon getting ever taller (we need a good storm!), however following the coldest night of 2014 I decided to just get the scope out and try shooting through the trees to see if the stacking process would average the branches out, well they did. This shot was taken with the DS40 at 400mm focal length with the DMK31 camera. There was some small C1 flaring going on in the small active regions at the time. A pretty quiet sun, but definitely better than no sun at all!
