Last Sun of 2015! Ha Full Disk 31st December

I woke this morning in the wake of 'Storm Frank' to a suckers gap - that band of clear blue skies that follows the passage of a cold front before the unstable air triggers off bands of showers.  It wasn't much of gap, but it was enough for me to capture this full disk of our star taken in Hydrogen Alpha light taken with the Coronado DS40 at 700mm focal length with the PGR Blackfly GigE IMX249 camera.  For such a low altitude sun the conditions were really stable and I was pleased with the result, especially as this is my last shot of the sun for 2015.  Happy New Year everyone, I hope it is a good year for you with clear skies!
