Thanks lads.
Below is a link to a full disc image of the Sun taken on the morning of the 26th with the DMK21, 0.5x focal reducer, SM90 filter, BF15 and TEC140.
8 panel mosaic. Each video file consists of 2,000 frames. Each video stacked in Autostakkert and then processed in PS.
Earth shown to scale in top left corner.

Still have a bit to go to get the mosaic blending properly.
Background illumination is quite uneven.

Well, the blending isnt all that bad Michael and the uneven illumination doesnt take away from the image at all.
