I managed quite a few images, despite the weather. The summary is here:

The sun shot is interesting. Which filters did you use?

Catalina was a bit disappointing for most observers
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.

I use a Baader filter for white light and a Fabry-Perot etalon for hydrogen alpha.
