Description

This image was taken on October 12th. I think this was the best seeing I have witnessed so far this year in Montreal. Judging from what I have experienced, I would rate it 4.5/5.0. There was barely any scintillation on the sun's disk, and in fact at some point I thought I was taking a video and the frame had frozen. The first image is a mosaic of two frames. It looks like an abstract tableaux to me!

Thanks,

-Charles
