I've captured images of the sun a number of times, but I don't think I've posted any of those here. So, this page will be a collection of all my solar images.
March 25-31, 2022
Below is a seven-day animation of images I took of the sun during the last week of March 2022. Clouds and seeing varied each day so some images are much better than others. But this animation gives a good idea of what the rate of rotation of the sun is and how sunspot groups evolve over time.
Here are several individual images from that last week of March.
September 6, 2021
An active sun, with 66 sun spots (per spaceweather.com) in four major sunspot groups. Two images below, with and without labels. This image was captured using my Televue 60 refractor on a photo tripod with an ASI 290mm camera and a reducer lens. I took about one minute of video, and stacked the resulting video in Autostakkert, with sharpening in Registax.

An image of the large sunspot group 2835 was taken through my C8HD with a 2.5x Powermate and the ASI 290MM camera. I used the Celestron white light solar filter that snaps onto the front of the C8. This is one of the better solar images I've taken.

A close-up of sunspot 2797 was taken through my C8HD with a 2.5x Powermate and the ASI 290MM camera. The Celestron solar filter was used on the front of the telescope.
