I'm just giddy!! I posted a pic of the sun through clouds yesterday and got such great wishes from everyone for some clear skies and it happened!!! Thanks for all the well wishes! I barely got in some shots as the clouds were moving really, really slowly, and when they finally cleared enough the sun was just above my roof and about to go behind my chimney, but I was able to use my dual set up with my Lunt and my ED80T for WL. Just caught both and did a 2 section mosaic for both. Images from today and the shot of my setup. Whoopeeeeeee! :whee:

Well done Warren, gotta grab it while you can I reckon.
Two cameras as well, or swap it across?
