That is nice.

You are right about improving. I really do not know much at all about imaging, but is seems that no mater how good someone gets, there is another layer of improvement that can be made if the person wants to persue it.

It is better than my efforts and to make matters worse my old digital camera that is red sensitive has packed up.

How did you take it?

It was taken with a Canon 450d (modded) but were taken in mono with backyard EOS planetary video mode X5 zoom.One 30 sec video for Sun surface detail & one for prominences at a higher exposure, stacked in registax and processed,coloured and layered in photoshop CS3.
I must thank ken Crawford for his brilliant tutorials on solar processing, they were a great help http://www.imagingde...martSharpen.htm

Thanks, Dave. I cannot take true mono with any of my cameras, UNLESS I can get my SPC880 to focus. That's easier said than done.

Focusing is a real problem, hit and miss most of the time even in mono, thanks to all for your comments.
