The Sun


The Sun is a dynamic and fascinating study offering a continuously changing form to engage the amateur astronomer.  
Capturing its beauty and power with both specialized still frame and video CCD cameras is an interest that’s particularly fascinating to me.  The Sun section is divided into two genres, imagery in “white” or visible light and a specialized
form of expression through the very narrow wavelength of a hydrogen-alpha solar filter. 

I invite you to browse the imagery posted here and enjoy some of the fascinating aspects of our day star.

Warning - Viewing the Sun directly with the naked eye or through a telescope or binoculars without a proper

solar filter can result in permanent eye damage or blindness in a fraction of a second.  Established safety
procedures for use with solar filters are mandatory to appropriately observe the Sun.
