The Sun in June 2011

A bit of a change in my solar gear has taken place.

I bought a second hand Lunt 60mm solar telescope. A bigger aperture than my PST, which I have now sold, so I'm hoping to get some more resolution. June was a pretty poor month for sunny days so not much chance to see the Sun but I did manage a couple of days.

First attempt at imaging with the Lunt, still a lot to learn.

My images are now captured on a DMK31USB camera.

This has a larger chip than my modified webcam and a higher capture frame rate.
