Great! Finally the Sun shows large Sunspots groups so observers and astrophotographers can have a lot of fun on watchin and imagin such a beautiful event or, at least, it's what happen to me. This image was taken with a Canon eos 40D at prime focus of a 6 inch Mak-Cass Intes Micro Alter M603 equipped with a Baader Astrosolar filter density 5 on a Celestron CGEM mount, focal length 1500 mms, focal ratio 10, iso 100, exposure time 1/125 s. and processed with Photoshop. Clear skies!
