Solar webcam attempt November 18th

I was awake early, so at 0830 GMT, I was TRYING to webcam the Sun with the PST. It was very trying. I started off indoors to keep the PC out of the daylight but the double glazing played havoc with the image. I tried the wall trick outside but the main problem appeared to be the limited focus travel of the PST. I added a Barlow lens to the imaging train and got sharper focus but could not see any details on the screen. I took some imaging runs, again more in hope than anything else.

Although I was able to capture a sharp edge to the solar disc, I did not obtain any surface detail.
