Pictures of the Sun in a H-alpha and in 'white' light. Getting ready for the Venus transit in June.! Taken 3/1/12 with a Coronado PST telescope
Sun in 'white' light with some Sunspots visible. Taken with a ST80 telescope, 25mm Meade eyepiece, Orion Solar filter (on objective) and Canon A590 camera. Slight fiddling with Photoshop. Camera attached to telescope with adapter from CNC Supply. 1/400 @ f/8 was longest exposure with no saturated pixels on camera.
