Hi,
I thought it was time I did some more solar imaging, using my full spectrum Olympus E-PL5 with the Skywatcher ED80 refractor. I used the VF4 electronic viewfinder to adjust focus, as it was easier to do this when viewing the image close-up. This is particularly as the conditions are very bright (obviously), and in order to block out as much light as possible, I draped a dark jumper over the camera and hid underneath it while adjusting focus.

Anyway, here are some of the images:

As you can see, the sun spots seen on different days are completely different.

It is the Skywatcher ED80 gold tube version. The filter used is Baader Solar continuum which is centered on 540nm.
