Spot 2712 seems to be vanishing. It isn’t very exciting in white light, but in Ha there are lots of swirly bits. 2711 is also about to vanish. There are a couple of reasonable prominences.
The moon phase, nearly full, wiped out any prospect of DSO observing tonight, but it seemed ideal to do a bit of dome spotting.
Domes tend to be small, and that stretches the poor little window-sill ST80 to the limit.
Anyway, for what its worth here is an image of 3 of the Gruithuisen domes. Mons Gruithuisen, Gruithuisen gamma and Gruithuisen delta. You can tell that they are raised domes as their shadows are reversed to those of craters.
Air a bit steadier and the sky clearer today, so the images are better. Since yesterday, the filament has developed and some prominences have appeared on the advancing limb. If you want to compare this with Andy and Damian’s images later today, don’t forget I have flipped and rotated these to match those from GONG and SOHO.

Although I was moderately pleased with my last image of Jupiter, take a look at this!!
