    Imaging with a 101 dollar lens

    Very nice result gorann! In regards to focus, wouldn't it focus properly at infinity? I have collected quite a few old school lenses (mainly Carl Zeiss, Meyer-Optik and Pentacon) that I'm planning to use for DSO work too! In regards to the radioactivity of the thorium in the fast 50mm takumar, it appears to be no more radioactive than bananas are (yep, bananas are radioactive too, but people never talk about it ) Thanks for sharing!

    Nice pics of our closest star!! Thanks for sharing! On a different note,xtreemchaos, what's the cool cat in your pic? Is it a Cornish Rex?
  7. Hi, it's me again :-) AR 2454, 2456, 2457 on 22nd of November. Fujifilm X-T10 with XC50-230 zoom lens, baader solar filter Today the seeing was somewhat better than yesterday and I used a different processing technique: I inverted the colours so the spots show up bright and the surface details (along with a lot of noise) are somewhat more evident. What do you think of this processing? On flickr: Thanks for looking. Ricky

    Thanks for the nice comments folks, I haven't taken any photo in ages so I feel quite rusty. I guess it's time to use a longer focal lenght tele or one of my telescopes :-)
