Bresser Skylux 70mm F10 refractor, Canon EOS 450D, JMB Solar Filter 60/75mm, ISO 400, exposure 1/125 sec.
With a small telescope and a solar filter, prominent sunspots were visible during the Annular Eclipse of January 15, 2010. Atmospheric turbulence is also evident in the image, due to the very low altitude of the eclipsed rising sun.
