Opticstar ED80 refractor on Celestron CGEM mount. Flea 3 1.3Mp mono USB camera. Lunt Herschel wedge. Solar continuum, 0.9ND & UV/IR cut filters used.

The eclipse about 1 hour after maximum here. First time I have imaged the sun & am amazed at the amount of detail produced by using a solar wedge.The setup had a field of view a little too small for the sun’s full disc but I like this image because of the sunspot just emerged from the moon’s edge.The sun was colourised in Pixinsight.
