The Sun was created by animaal
First attempt at solar imaging.

The earth was superimposed for scale, I'm not pretending it was sitting there :)





I had to resize the image for this posting to work though

Hi,

Thanks. I used an 80mm refractor, a Daystar Quark, and a mono ASI camera. I took two images, one with low intensity for surface detail, one with high intensity for prominence detail, and then combined them.

I am just wondering if you could make a full image of the Sun?

Clear skies,

Aubrey.

Not much sun around these days :)

Really though, I don't know if I could make that work. The camera has a very small sensor. A DSLR may cover the whole sun, I'm not sure. But being RGB, it may not come out as well. Worth a shot though.
