The Sun

On Thursday my camera adapter arrived for my telescope. And wouldn’t you know, the next five days were cloudy. But the gloom finally parted and I quickly pulled out all the equipment for some celestial photography. This first picture shows the sun in all its glory! Actually, not quite all its glory because I can’t adjust zoom, so I couldn’t get the whole sun in a single view. Not a bad problem to have really.

The Sun! Now with Sunspot!

I did, of course, have a sun filter on my telescope. Otherwise anyone who saw this photo would immediately go blind.

Now that the sun has set, I will be returning to the great outdoors to try my hand at some planets and or stars. Stay tuned for more exciting photos!
