Nearly an expensive Oops!!

Clear blue skies all day today and very nearly an accident!!!  I forgot to put the Solar filter on the scope and nearly fried the camera.  I just hit STOP! in time as the scope slewed toward the Sun.  It just shows how easy it is to make a mistake when observing or imaging the Sun.  Luckily no harm done apart from my nerves!

Sun 16 April 2016–One BIG spot!!

Had to wait all day for the clouds to clear and still had to contend with some high hazy stuff that insisted on moving at 90° to the low clouds!!  ED120APO and a 2.5x Powermate for the close-up, Canon 1100D and ASI120mm cameras - the close up is the best of a dozen attempts and is a stack of 64 of 4000 frames taken:
