Solar Photography - A Quick Experiment

A quick experiment with using an old Meade DSI camera and a 2x Barlow on the PST. There was a lot of dust in the optical path--mostly on the imaging chip, I think. I cropped out about 80% of the image to get a "clean" bit.

The DSI is a monochrome (black & white) camera. I colorized the image to make it look more "natural."

I need the skies to cooperate a bit so that I can spend some time working out how to do this stuff. So far the weather forecast doesn't look promising...
