3 Images taken with Orion 140 Maksutov f14.3, Baader Solar Film and Canon 1000D DSLR from Fulwood Preston.

Excellent conditions with hardly a cloud in the sky (rare for Lancashire!) I missed the end of the transit as the Sun had dipped behind the trees.

2nd Contact – 11:15 UT, just after 2nd Contact 11:17 UT and one at 13:11 UT
