This may be silly to ask, but "made" with what tools? 0_o

Is this with a telescope? Of what power? Just a camcorder?

Made in the sense of with a rendering software of some sort?

If you don't mind me asking, how much did all that (sans computer) set you back? What is the range like? Do you have it near the roof? Do you live in an area with clean-ish air? Sorry, I'm just nosy. >

I managed to get it too, finally, after a week of clouds. Taken about 30 minutes ago, in Ha light. Yes, it does look more impressive in white light, maybe, tomorrow if the sun shines, I'll put my normal telescope with a Baader solar filter on and try again.
(not the best solar image, the atmosphere was very unstable)

lol, but I am still trying to get the images as close to as what I can see with my eye. Sometimes I can get very close, and other times not. One of the protuberances today was really spectacular. Will see what more I can do with the series of photos I took today

grrrr ... too late to edit my post, but it is upside down. That big protuberance on top should have been on the bottom (from the way I saw it in my telescope). I must still learn how to orient my solar pictures correctly. On second thoughts, my telescope would have inverted the image, and if my camera was rotated, then it is correct after all. Sheez, now I am confused with which orientation is the correct one.
