:thumbsup: to David.  In our particular branch of Sticksville we've got wall-to-wall cloud and despondency down to zero feet.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

November! No sun, no moon....

Our sky has around 50% cloud, and the clouds are fairly mobile.

David is entertaining another AstroBachelor right now.

Nice shot.  Not much chance of imaging the sun here.

My image doesn't come anywhere near reflecting the Wowness of viewing the tranist through the eyepiece of my telescope. That little blemish just inside the disc of the sun at about 9 o'clock is a planet. An ickle one but a chuffing planet none the less. Makes yourealise that the sun is a bit big isn't it?
