My first shot of the sun! I’m making baby steps further into Astrophotography with the addition of a Solar Filter. The filter came in last week, but we’ve had nothing but rain and overcast skies since then so I’ve not been able to try it out.
Today we have partly cloudy skies and no rain. I was so excited to finally have sun that I set up and started shooting and thought I was fully extended to 200mm. Sigh, I wasn’t even close!
There are clouds moving over the sun at the moment. I’ll set up again and take another shot this afternoon.
I’m so blond all too often.
