Hi all,
          something different.  The iEXOS-100 makes an excellent mount to support my Lunt Double- Stack  H-alpha telescope.
Levelled tripod and, with correct latitude, aligned approximately due North.  Simple slew to Sun and only a small adjustment to North alignment brought the Sun's image onto the camera sensor. Tracking superb and the N/S/E/W slow slewing worked perfectly to centre the Sun's image. Mount's performance could not have been better.  Telescope control and image capture in the hood.   2,000 frames aligned and stacked in AutoStakkert! and processed in Photoshop.

The Sun is just waking up from a big sleep and the surface is now showing some interesting features.  It is very hard to get a totally uniform brightness full solar disk but this has worked reasonably well.
Best regards to you all.
Ian
