November 30th MorningWith my Photobucket nearly full I reprocessed some old hydrogen alpha photos to make into a video and deleted them from Photobucket. Some were so poor that I could not obtain any detail but others reprocessed rather well.

November 29th 0920 GMTIt was nice to see the Sun again. even though it was low and I was probably missing some fainter sunspots. I just saw one near the bottom of the solar disc.
November 28th EveningIt was no great surprise that the bad weather returned. I reprocessed some more solar images from 2007.
November 27th High NoonIt felt like years since I actually had any live action to report, although it was only a week. It was too cloudy for hydrogen alpha viewing or photography but I managed a binocular scan of the sunspots and the pattern had changed completely in a week.
November 25th EveningI reprocessed another set of hydrogen alpha shots from 2006 and 2007.
November 24th EveningIt was clear after a cloudy day. Having a cold was frustrating, so I reprocessed two old solar calcium K photos from July 16th and October 7th 2006.
I also processed some solar hydrogen alpha shots from 2006.
November 23rd MorningWith persistent rain and 100% cloud cover, I did some more reprocessing of my hydrogen alpha shots of the Sun with my PST.
The first was from July 16th 2005.
The next was from June 23rd 2005.
The next was from June 24th 2005.
The next was from May 2nd 2005.
The next one was from July 12th 2005.
These were a day later.
November 22nd EveningI reprocessed a Sun photo in hydrogen alpha light from April 26th 2005.
Then I reprocessed a Sun photo in hydrogen alpha light from June 26th 2005.
Then I reprocessed two Sun photos in hydrogen alpha light from September 17th 2005.
Then I reprocessed a Sun photo in hydrogen alpha light from July 9th 2005 and produced two separate close-ups.
I reprocessed some solar shots from 1250 GMT on June 12th 2005.
I reprocessed a solar shot from 1255 GMT on May 12th 2005.
I reprocessed some solar shots from May 15th 2005.
November 22nd AfternoonI reprocessed some shots of the Sun in hydrogen alpha light from October 27th 2005.
November 20th EveningQuite frankly, the evening was 100% grey cloud. I reprocessed my solar "white light" images from 2004.

November 19th 1110 GMTThere was still some haze about but I had a slightly clearer view of the Sun. A new sunspot had formed and the overall shape of the group had changed.
November 18th 1135 GMTConditions were much better, with only some thin haze around. I was able to resolve the active group into 3 separate sunspots.
November 16th 1150 GMTConditions were still quite poor, as they had been for some time but new activity had rotated on. It appeared as a single large sunspot to my binoculars but professional photographs showed it as a tight group containing at least 3 individual sunspots.
November 12th 1435 GMTI bin scanned the Sun through patchy cloud and did not see any sunspots.
November 10th 0835 GMT
November 9th 0840 GMTIt had only been four days since I'd seen the Sun. It felt longer but, for a change, it was clear. The sunspots I'd seen before had rotated near to the centre of the solar disc.
November 5th 1415 GMT
Nov 4th 0830 GMT
Nov 3rd 1430 GMT
November 2nd 1835 GMT
The sky was clear in parts and I saw the Moon about 9 days since the “new” moon. I saw many details near the terminator and the southern highlands looked great.
