Well why not, twas my first year of Solar imaging too. Very much a learner so don't laugh. Or laugh if you like, I can take it, it very much boggles my brain that I'm capable of doing any of this imaging stuff :) Onwards to better things in 2017!

In no particular order.

11/07/16. My very first Solar image (not that you'd know if I didn't tell you what it was), iPhone up to the EP, took some video and somehow managed to get it to stack.

08/10/16 I think. AR2599 close up. My first decent close up.


09/08/16. Lots of spots, well, for me at the time anyway.

My first year too, got a Lunt ls50tha ds in march and a white light filter for my st80. 


Amazing shots.  I would aspire to get images like that in the future.

A few of mine from last year. Lots to choose from hence being a bit late to the party! 2016 was really about picking up where I left off with my Ca-K imaging from 2015 but then I also added a Lunt white light wedge part way through the year.





And probably my favourite image of the year


Rarely do conditions allow you to capture all three lights reasonably well.
