Flintstone Stargazing

Sun (with sunspot 1243) on 7/2/11

Filed under: Observation Journal — Ed @ 11:16 am

A while back I sold my 150mm Maksutov and with it, the matching solar filter. This morning, I made another homemade solar filter using leftover filter material and I took a bunch of pictures of the sun and stacked them. There’s not a lot going on right now – just one small sunspot, but it’s nice to know that if things do get interesting, I can get out the filter and take some images.
