CPC-1100 with f/6.3 Focal Reducer; Canon Rebel XT DSLR Full-aperture AstroZap Baader Solar Filter; 1/2500-sec; ISO-200
The Rebel sensor size is too small to squeeze in the entire sun, so I took pictures of the upper and lower halves and stitched them together. Yellow color added afterward via software.
