The Astrophotography season of 2011-12 was split for me. During the first part of the season I discarded my CCD camera and played with doing colour imaging with my IR modified Canon 350 camera. Later in the season I went back to the CCD camera. Weather was fairly typical. There were superb week long clear periods at the end of September 2011 and at the end of March 2012. There was also a nice spell in the run up to Christmas.
