Friday Sun Up Close

Friday Sun Spots

Took these images of the sun around noon today (Friday). The
larger images were taken with a 6 inch refractor telescope
(f=1000mm) and a Nikon D3000 DSLR. The smaller image was taken with a 200mm telephoto lens. A Thousand Oaks Type 2
(glass) solar filter was used for all the pictures. Exposures were 1/1600 second for the larger images and 1/250
second for the telephoto (all were taken with an ISO of 100).
