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 :)

Venus and Jupiter 4 arc minutes apart.
Daylight planetary imaging is tough.

My current setup.
The new LS152Tha/B34/DSII 152mm double stacked solarscope is on the left, the WO FLT132 132mm APO refractor on the right and on top of that is the Z80 80mm refractor which is an excellent counterweight to balance out the back heavy solar scope.
All mounted on a Paramount MX.
So when are those clouds meant to leave :)

I am so ashamed.
I brought a nice big Lunt LS152Tha/DSII Ha solar scope. Fully modular, all the Ha gear can be easily removed leaving a 152mm F7 doublet. Well due to the obligatory clouds during the day, 1st light was doing that sissy night time stuff and imaging the Trifid Nebula.
I feel so dirty, this sort of blasphemy will require some serious sacrifices to the Sun Gods :)
