CaK Full Disk 5th November

It may well be fireworks night here in the UK, but there are no fireworks on the sun at the moment, with a virtually blank disk other than a couple of areas of plage and a single very small sunspot.  Even the prominences were very small scale and barely visible.  The sun is getting very low in the sky now as we head into november and it won't be long until my viewing window is very limited.  Taken with the 40mm scope at 500mm focal length with the homebrew CaK filter and the PGR Chameleon 3 camera.
