The Sun


Recommended Posts

I want to show you some images with the Sun, in white light, taken during my "career" of amateur astrophotographer. The majority of the photos was taken with my dSLR camera Canon 550D. I only recently replaced (from taking videos) the dSLR with the webcam (Microsoft Lifecam Studio and 6000HD).

Good work. I encourage you to try sunspot animations (when seeing is very good), from what I see on your blog Mak 127 + Lifecam will do fine.
