Was keen to image monster sunspot on Eastern limb but very windy here this morning. I thought setting up a long refractor and doing 2 minute long video runs wouldnt really work so I went back to basics and took this with a DSLR through a squat Nexstar 8SE with Baader safety film on the front end. The Nexstar won’t align on the Sun but I set it to Venus which seemed stable enough.
