Behold, directly overhead, a certain strange star was suddenly seen...
Amazed, and as if astonished and stupefied, I stood still.

El Sol

Here's a photo of the sun.  I had an impossible time finding a perfect focus.  I used a Celestron SP-C6 telescope and an Olympus C-4040Zoom.  I was very impressed with the Thousand Oaks Solar Filter.  The RG film is great.  I used to use Roger Tutthill's solar filter.  Oaks is a more natural color instead of blue.
