The sky this morning is clear but not much solar activity on the Sun except for a large dark filament on the center of he Sun's disk as well as some small prominences only. I capture only the dark filament before I got obstructed by the building.

The sky this morning is clear and I was surprised that I can see sunrise now from my observing window but very low. I quickly setup my solar scope setup to quickly try to image the Sun before it gets blocked again by the building! From what I observed this morning, I have about less than 15mins worth of observing and imaging time for me to get it over it before the obstruction. The Sun is blank right now with no sunspot but in Ha wavelength, I got to see a large NW Hedgerow prominence. Seeing condition is also good despite its low altitude from the horizon when I image it.
The sky this evening is very hazy and cloudy! I set up my portable imaging setup using ZWO ASI120MM webcam on Canon EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS L lens set at 400mm f/5.6 with 2x barlow lens to image the Tycho crater region through passing clouds and small cloud opening before I totally got clouded out.
