When this active region was first spotted I looked at the weather forecast and practically gave up on it. I was so down about it I nearly turned to imaging comets! But a window in the clouds appeared today and first thing this morning I was all set up waiting for the Sun to clear a tree in the East and rise higher. I have been fortunate as no sooner had I finished broken clouds started to roll in.

So here is my capture of AR2767 in greyscale.
