    Arrow 28th of Feb Sun spot cluster.



    Took my scope out today to attempt to clean it. Lots of dust particles in there.
    Don't notice them at night..
    Anyway this is a 2,000 frame shot of a sun spot cluster stacked in registack and processed in cs4 with an orange filter added for color.
    Thanks..

    What scope and camera did you use for this, I tried taking some images of the sun awhile ago but I didn't really pick up any detail. Are you saying you added the orange color in PS, or you used an orange filter on your scope?

    Thanks
    Ryan

    Hi Ryan.
    I shot a 90 second video clip using my 5d mk ii using afocal method. I had a 25mm ep in at the time. The scope I used was my cpc800. In cs4, I can apply filters to a finished image, like sepia etc...

    Here it is before and after...
