April 8, 2005 partial eclipse

Here is an image of the partial solar eclipse on April 8, 2005. The Moon has occulted the left edge of the Sun and there is a sunspot visible near the top and aonther much smaller one is visible near the bottom of the Sun in this white light projection made with the McMath Solar Telescope. This image was taken with my Canon A75 camera.

beautiful image Jim! :) In fact, I've heard that McMath scope is the only solar-telescope in the world that can actually project image of the stars. Did you ever see that projection? just wonderful to imagine the lights of the stars at prime focus, visible to the naked eye, wow... :)
