This image of the Sun was taken on 2nd July 2011 using a DMK 41AU02 camera from Imaging Source on a Lunt 60mm refractor with dual Hydrogen-Alpha filters. The DMK camera uses a 1280x960 pixel 1/2" CCD sensor. The video sequence was approximately 500 frames at 15 frames per second. Processed in Registax and Photoshop to produce this image. The inset shows the earth to the same scale. [Alan Jefferis]
