A set of images of the Annular eclipse can be seen by clicking on the image above.

These were the best of the telescope shots. The exposures that I calculated before the event were nullified by the cloud, and so I took my best guess.
The earlier partial phases did not come out at all, even with a 1 second exposure.
A bit disappointing but more lessons learned, not that I will probably get another chance at an eclipse in the near future!
Looking closely, you can just see some Sunspots at about 4 and 10 o’clock.
I didn’t bother recording times too closely as I was enjoying the event too much!!
