I've only recently invested in a Herschel wedge which I've been keen to try out with both my 80mm refractor and eventually one of my larger refactors (my 150mm f/8) although that will have to wait until the Sun is a bit higher again as I have a very short window when I can lock on to it from my permanent pier beside my observatory.    Conditions weren't that steady in the 45 minutes window I did have but I was able to capture some reasonable images  in this small montage.
