The Sun 22-6-08 15.36 UT

Tricky trying to photograph the sun in 61+ mph winds today! Its been blowing a gale all day and very cloudy too. I had to remove the PST sun shield to prevent the whole scope and mount from taking off! Managed a half hour bouncing view in a brief clear-sky window and recorded a very quiet sun. Only very low prominences on the south, west and north limbs today with no clear surface activity. AR999 is still there as faint plage according to Pete Lawrence’s images on the CN solar forum, but the main spot has faded.
