“There’s a little black spot on the Sun today…”

A few actually…

Took the scope out this afternoon to try out the new ScopeTronix 40mm Plössl. I was excited to get it as up until now I have been unable to image the entire disk of the Sun or Moon in a single frame. FINALLY! 🙂 Again, a difficult focus but at least with the Olympus I’m shooting through the eyepiece so I can get it reasonably in focus before snapping the camera on.

I was probably out there about 45 minutes. The great thing about the ETX90 is you can just grab it and bring it outside in 2 minutes. It’s really convenient — and I gotta tell you, if it wasn’t I probably wouldn’t use it… I’m lazy. Anyway, here are the results of the session.
