Impact of solar minimum on limiting magnitude

I was just reading up on Arp's Atlas of peculiar galaxies, and he said due to the solar minimum he was able to get far deeper images from the 200" Hale telescope than previous!

I was wondering if amateurs have noticed the same during the current solar minimum????
