    Finally a cloud hole :) This is the sun at about 1300mm. Its probably a little out of focus, but unless theres sun spots its hard for me to nail the focus on this one. As you can see the sun is blank at the moment.
    By 2011 or so there will be lots of activity and it will be worth the effort to look at.

    Oh shutter 1/80th @ F/6.3 ISO 200. Shows ya how much light the solar filter is blocking.

    You wasted your time, I could draw that up in MSpaint in about 5 seconds.

    That is pretty amazing. Couldn't you just focus to infinity?

    i'm assuming he's using a telescope that can focus on stars MUCH farther away than the sun, so setting it to infinity won't work really well. :o

    Yeah telescope, so the only thing I can do is leave the camera installed after a night session and not change focus.
