Camcorder Solar - EP Projection + PST


Recommended Posts

I dont have a DMK or Lumenera etc :) so I just plop my el cheapo Sony camcorder onto a hyperion zoom EP in my standard PST and record for a bit. This is what pops out, well the close up bit, the full view was via a CCD camera.

Focussing is real tricky like this :) but I think the technique has got some potential as it needs no PC etc at the mount, and at least a little detail is available. I also find it easier to show onlookers what I am seeing via the LCD screen on the camcorder, a lot of people struggle to appreciate the sun through a solar scope at first it seems.
