Solar Image (2)

imageFor this solar image I used an Imaging Source DMK51AU02.AS video camera. With its large format it can capture the whole sun in a single image with the Lunt Systems 80mm solar refractor. I used a video frame rate of 7.5 frames per second and combined 80% of 2000 images to produce the final image. The image was inverted and sharpened in Photoshop.  The white spot is actually a sunspot.
