Photography ~ The Sun–Now with a Baader Solar Filter, 09/14

That means a “white” versus “orange” sun

It was too cloudy to get a good focus. I used CamRanger for exposure selection [manual mode] and triggering the shutter.


Nonetheless, I like the clouds. They are not visible with my orange filter.

We have more SunSpots.

I think these are reasonably good images [08/04 pics] for an object 93,000,000 miles away. In many ways, I wish it were more than a disc and on Monday, a disc with a black disc in front of it, except for those who experience totality. If I risk possible rain and cloudiness, maybe I can get a once-in-a-lifetime capture. I have settled on capturing a banana sun.


It is the photographic challenge that inspires us…

Photography ~ The Sun, Fayetteville, North Carolina–800mm Super Telephoto, 08/04

That is a Canon EF 400mm Super Telephoto Lens, + a Canon Extender EF 2X III [Teleconverter]

I know it is a sunspot because of reported sunspot activity and my comparing my pics with Solar and Heliospheric Observatory Picture, taken today. It took me assessing several of my pics to know I captured an event on the surface of the sun.

To keep the pics interesting, I have a few clouds, as well.
