The attached is a single 1/3200 of a second exposure at ISO 100 taken using an Orion 80MM f/6 ED80T CF Triplet Apochromatic refractor connected to a Canon 700D DSLR driven by a Star Adventurer mount on an equatorial wedge.
In addition to the other phenomena, the views of beads, chromosphere & prominences were incredible!
