October 2nd AstroPhoMo (Astro Photo Month)

Today's effort is a cloudy Sun take through an ED80 Refractor with the Canon 350D.

I also managed to grab some (also very cloudy) frames with a Meade DSI ccd  through a Coronado PST. You can just see some solar flares/prominence around the limb at approximately 10 and 2 o'clock respectively.

 Here's the telescope setup for today. The two standard refractors have special solar filters in order to view the sun without causing damage to person or equipment.  NEVER LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN WITHOUT PROPER EQUIPMENT!!!
