The sun has certainly been boring recently. Thank goodness for our old friend the Moon. Venus and Jupiter are looking impressive in the sky, but not so through a telescope.
I use an 11" Celestron SCT (CPC 1100) on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 500D for imaging.

The Sun is even quiet in hydrogen alpha light but I'm getting the odd decent image now and again.
