I've never watched the sun with a solar scope... How much detail is visible really?

It looks so nice but expensive :)

You've got that right! I've yet to see the sun in h-alpha, maybe one day!

Plenty when the seeing is good! It can be quite amazing watching proms develop as you observe them, some are quite fast moving. The disk was quiet as far as I could see today, no filaments to speak of, but one large group of proms and a few other fainter ones scattered around the limb.

Entry level doesn't have to be silly money, a used PST at around £500 or less can show plenty.

For now I'll stick with the night sky, but it's great that you can see the motion, unbelievable...

Sometime I'll have a look one way or another...

Great set-up there Garryblueboy, thanks for posting.

Just one question, could you or have you mounted a white light scope along side the Lunt?
