Orion Mak 90 spotting scope with Orion 90mm solar filter. Toucam at prime focus, on Vixen GP mount. Processed with Registax and IRIS.
The recent sunspot that causes an X-ray flare. This is the white light image of it. Note that it is taken with a 90mm Maksutov only! This scope is originally intended as a guidescope but in the end it impresses me as a keeper scope.
