First attempts at Solar observing, using AstroZap Solar Filter
Today, I decided to have a go at imaging the sun. I was using an AstroZap AZ-1511 Glass Solar filter which is suitable for a 105-111mm telescope. The telescope I was using is normally one of my guidescopes, it is the Bressier Messier AR90s/500 and had it on the EXOS-2 Goto mount.
No polar alignment, only roughly pointing true north, and the mount then set for Solar Tracking speed.
Imaging done with Nikon Z50 camera and AstroPhotography Tools software.
