I have not previously tried solar imaging but thought I would give it a trial in preparation for the forthcoming Mercury transit. My set-up is a 60mm triplet APO with Canon 100D, imaging through Baader Astro Solar film.
Through an eyepiece I am able to see faculae and a few sun-spots but when I try imaging I've not so far managed to capture any of this detail.
Do you have any recommendations / suggestions as to how to proceed in particular with regard to focusing and image capture - I have been trying to use Planetary mode with 5 x zoom.
I think the problem is that the Sun's brightness is washing out the surface details.
Thanks in advance
