Skywatcher ED100 – solar imaging

Today I had the perfect opportunity to try Solar imaging with the Skywatcher ED100 I borrowed from my friend. This has a focal length of 900mm at F9.0 aperture. This is perfect for imaging of the entire solar disc, or if paired with a Barlow lens, will allow for even closer views of the sunspots.

Currently there is a prominent sunspot nicknamed AR2205, which has been having quite a bit of activity on the sun. Hence it is the perfect subject for imaging on the sun.

I used my Olympus E-P5 for the Baader Solar continuum (double-stacked) images and the Olympus E-PL5 for the UV (Baader U) images.
