I have a solarmax 60 with a bf10 blocking filter and I am trying to image full solar disk images. However, i have only been able to capture about 90% of the disk. I am hoping that the forum members can give some advice as to how I may be able to get full disk images without resorting to mosaics. I have a DMK31 camera and have tried a number of things like a 0.5 focal reducer, but I am still struggling. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Other than a focal reducer, a mosaic is about to only way to go unless you get a camera with a bigger chip.
