CaK Disk Through The Clouds - 20th March

CaK-FD-colour Saturday was predominantly cloudy, however diffuse shadows appeared late in the afternoon so I decided to see what could be seen through the clouds. I had to use 2x2 binning and have the camera gain 3/4 the way up to get an image on the screen, but this just about worked! Including the cloud haze around the disk the new active region and it's attendant spot can be seen that has just rounded the limb. Taken with the Coronado sm40 with a 2x Cemax barlow. I think I will be lucky if I get any cloud breaks on the Sunday too!
