I wasnt going to post this here but I was excited by my first attempt at Solar imaging! Taken around 2pm today so not the best time in the day but I was waiting for an extention tube to turn up! Thanks Steve (saganite) for the lovely scope.

One single frame captured with my Canon 6D DSLR, Baader Continuum filter and Baader 3.8 solar film.

My very rough and ready home made solar finder worked a treat and everything went really smoothly and a little easier than I thought it would be.

Nice widefield. Congrats on your first capture. What scope is it ? I want to upgrade myself at some point to the imaging film.

Never tried one i hear they are rather nice. 

Seems to be 😊 the Solar film seems to work well, I made the holder for it and for the visual 5.0 film as well.
