These earthly godfathers of Heaven's lights, that give a name to every fixed star, have no more profit of their shining nights than those that walk and know not what they are.

— William Shakespeare

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.

Like I wrote on my blog, I really couldn't find a perfect focus.  It's hot now!
