The Sun 25th Aug 2007

This image of the Sun taken with Canon EOS 400D and f/6.3 focal reducer on C9.25 with Baader film. 6 images stacked in Registax and slightly tinted and sharpened using Paintshop pro.

Below is an image of the sunspot (0969) taken at prime focus with the DMK camera.

Lower than below are some pictures of my homemade solar filter.
I tried to get the Baader film as flat as possible, but it has wrinkled over time. Doesn't seem to affect the imaging though... I think.
