    Default Better solar image than my first one



    So I made several different exposures with each camera, with different ISO, f/stop, and shutter time... I missed this one while I was running through them... I think this one is much better. It actually has some surface texture. ...and the focus is better as well... which might have been why there apprears to be none in the first one. I had to coax it out of it, and as a result, I feel like it's a little oversaturated, but it's there.

    Pretty good. Never done solar myself, but that looks like nice capture.
