Hi Phillip!

Which Baader filter were you using?  You have some amazing granularity showing up. :)

If that filter type is not terribly expensive, I may have to get one for one of my scopes.

Currently, I have white light filters only.

 

Thanks,

 

Bill

Hi Bill,

 

It is a white light Baader filter. I surprised myself on these and similar shots recently. I have even managed to get the phases of Venus and some albedo features on Mars. The key is to take the lowest ISO and shortest exposure time. You then stretch and boost the contrast and you find you get solar features that you cannot get when looking at the Sun.
