My year in review
Here are a few of my images taken during 2015
I think I showed great restraint not to fill the whole image full of Suns :)

Australia seems to be moving north by about 7cm a year.
I know the Aussies dont really like us Kiwi's but to move the whole continent is going a bit far :)
A significant correction must be made by the end of the year for navigation technology to keep working smoothly.

An oldie from 2013.
I found that G+ lets you use an animated GIF for my cover photo, so here it is.
28 frame animation of a solar prominence lifting off the Sun's edge.
This event occurred over 21 minutes.
Taken with a Lunt LS80THa/B18 single stacked solar scope and DMK21AU618AS camera with 2.5x powermate

Those still on the old G+ can zoom right in, the new G+ seems to have removed that feature for some reason ???

Paul, your images of the moon are nothung short of amazing and their contrast so sharp and clear. I am a lunar visual observer and I use a 102mm f11 refractor and your photos in conjunction with a moon atlas and map and they arena great aid in identifying lunar features.
