Happy New Year to you all . . . :grin:

Yesterdays torrential downpours gave up eventually to reveal a beautiful start to 2013 , great big blue sky and lovely seeing , long may it continue . . . :lol:

Needed just one set of fifty frames to get a result , stacked 42 of them at 95% . . . !!!

Beautiful shot as usual. The sunpost 1640 is growing every day as per Spaceweather.com.

That's a gret image. Beautiful and so sharp. What a nice sunspots group. Lucky you. I missed the last two days of clear sky because I was stuck at work.
