Sunspot with Altair GP-Cam

Posted on

For the first time in months we had a beautiful, clear sunny day!

I took the Skywatcher 80ED with the Baader filter to capture some images of the sun using my Altair GP-Cam. I took some photos direct and then tried using a 0.6 reducer and yellow colour filter. On the face of the Sun was a single sunspot which imaged quite well with the camera.


Next are some images of the Sunspot without the reducer and colour filter.
