Images were taken at Lerwick, Shetland (60.1 N, 1.1 W) using an elderly Celestron C8, Thousand Oaks full aperture filter and a Canon 400D camera on an undriven roughly-aligned mount. Exposure was 1/100 s @ ISO 800. The day started out beautifully calm but cloudy just where it wasn't wanted. As the sun became visible so did the wind rise - c'est la vie! - and the cloud continued to track the sun's path.
