The Sun & Sumspots


Callum Pennington

St. Helens, Merseyside

A Sky-Watcher BK 1309 EQ2 Newtonian Equatorial mounted telesope, a super 25 wide angle eyepiece, a 130mm diameter solar filter and an ordinary smart phone mounted on a Carson Optical Universal Optics Adapter,

An image I had taken of the Sun with sunspots; this was my first time photographing the Sun and I’m quite proud of it with it being my first. I’m also pretty surprised with the outcome of the image since it was only taken using a mobile phone.
