Solar Imaging Session - May 12, 2012
After deciding last night what I will be bringing to the May 21, 2012 Annular Solar Eclipse expedition, I tested my Canon EOS 500D DSLR with Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS L lens with Canon EF 1.4x converter set at 560mm f/11 (35mm equivalent of 900mm f/11) on the Sun in white light and below is the result which can still show good details and added advantage of portability over my main solar scope, TV-101 refractor for the event I crop the image a bit to show slightly better image scale to see better details on AR11476 Sunspot Group as well as AR11477 and a new sunspot group AR11478. Looks promising! T-9 days to go!
