Seeing was horrendous but had to get out to capture something with all those delicious proms!  I tried an animation but it ended up in the round bin and besides, Simon caught the best part with the lift off of that massive SW prom!  Here are the best frames from that outing.  Also set up my new Seestar 50 just for fun.  No problem finding the sun and nice for catching a quick glimpse of the spots.  Used it last night and it was definitely fun to watch the image just bloom before your eyes!  As always you can click on the images to view in Astrobin at full resolution

Indeed!  Did you see the liftoff animation that Simon on SC posted?  It is amazing.
