Sun with a DSLR - 18.2.15


Recommended Posts

I was cleaning up the mount in bright sunshine this morning so decided to have a go on the sun. Having just recently obtained Backyard EOS, I put a Canon 40D on the scope to try out focus and capture on the sun (normally I’m using a SkyNyx for this). Mightily impressed with Backyard EOS, focus and exposure evaluation on the laptop screen is simple, also surprised how much detail can be picked out on a single frame from a standard dslr - this was with a 2.5x Powermate added and consists of two frames butted together in Photoshop.
