Up close with a couple of Sun spots.

After stripping, cleaning and rebuilding a 10 inch Meade I decided to have a play to see what it could do.


I fabbed up a couple of radius brackets and a dove tail bar and loaded it up on my poor old EQ5. :o


Not the steadiest of set ups for it by any means granted   :facepalm::screwloose:  but what the heck. :lol: :lol: :lol:


I then fabbed up a Solar filter from an old cardboard box and some Baader solar film.


Stuck the webcam in focused it up and took a 1500 frame AVI.

Stacked in Registax 5

Coloured  and played with in PS6

(The weird little bubbles are from the solar film.)
