Nice images, Pedro. Blank across all lights :(

Deep minimum certainly is in progress.

Almost nothing to see? Except for a near perfect solar disk! Beautifully executed, Pedro.

Ah

No wonder I was struggling to see proms testing the Vixen VMC110 mod today.
At least I could see what was there.

Ripped the bodged on Svbonny UV-IR filter to try next time.
Maybe it will work transposed to an old Celestron filter mount with room to tilt it.
