Derbyshire New Year sunset.
Sunspot #841 is clearly seen at th setting sun
Here is one taken yesterday at Montreat, North Carolina
Beautiful colors A-Nomad.
Sod1 - love your closeup sun shots showing the sun spots & the other features.
How do you manage to get such detailed images? - the trees get in the way when I try :D
No seriously, I was curious how you did get the shots.
Thank you, Phill. I use 500 mm lens. I also watch my aperture and exposure. If the sun will be overexposed one cannot see sunspots. My 500 is not a very good mirror lens. It has fixed aperture of 8. In the beginning of the sunset I set shutter to 4000 and then as sunset progress I make the number smaller. I'm hunting for green flashes and they are hard to photograph. Please, remember that one could hurt his eyes while watching even setting sun. I just cannot stop watching and photographing the sun.Quote:
