Solar setup

Recommended Posts

I'd say that any almost every scope WITH THE CORRECT SOLAR FILTER ATTACHED would give "good shots of the sun", whatever that means.

Your 430mm focal length scope will probably capture the whole solar disc.

A 3000mm FL SCT would only show a small part, fine for "closeups" of sunspot groups.

The sun is often captured with "Planetary Cameras" in video mode, so that the frames that are distorted by atmospherics can be rejected.

With your D5300 a stack of a series of single fast exposures would give similar results.
