Equipment
Orion solar filter on a 4" Unitron achromatic refractor and equatorial mount. Image through eyepiece using camera on LG HTC phone.
Description
I expected more distortion in the sun's image as it set behind the mountains west of Las Cruces, NM. Smoke from Gila Wilderness fire and clouds cooperated by their absence.
