Lovely sunset earlier, so I took some photos. I could see the "spot" when i zoomed in. Exiting


I would have never guessed i could actually catch a sunspot with my camera? Unless i get a professional's opinion, i guess i caught a sunspot.






Here it is gone.

It looks like you did catch a sun spot, what were you using for a filter?.

I used to set up my telescope inside my east facing window and watch sunspots in the morning by placing a piece of paper on the floor below the eyepiece.

Can't afford a camera and filter with all of the required fitments to adapt it to my telescope, kind of a "narrow usefulness" investment of funds anyway...

I don't know enough to claim thats a sunspot ..however very nice pictures. It looks like a planet or the obvious......its a UFO or nibiru.

Possible
Here are the spot currently visible. Looks like you got the one near the equator.

Hi there
I didn't use a filter. Shot it with a Canon SX40


I know it is not a wise move, but, man, i had too

I will just stick with sunspot


Nah, not a planet. It moved with the sun as it set.

Amazing how technology is advancing so quickly eh? Looks cool mate.
And great photos btw.

Question for my general curiousity, I dont know much about cameras. But is it "healthy" for a camera to be pointed directly at the sun? Just wondering

Hi there, & thank you


No, it is not wise (IMO) to take photos of the sun without filters. But, the sun wasn't that bright. I could look at it with the naked eye at that moment.

could be an eclipse with Venus or Mercury as well.

Or Mothership at La Grange Point!

or the second sun

or a sunpot. I cant imagine catching the sun spot on the camera tho. the sun is too powerful. In space they filter in Ultraviolet or Gamma to see those.

Not saying impossible tho.

As the sun dimmed, the object could be seen better.

Phage, look at the 1st photo. Notice another spot at the bottom right? Then in the photos 3-6 you can still see the other spot on the left hand side of the tree.

I only noticed the other spots earlier.

*Spot at the right bottom of "equator" one.

Photo 1


Then the one that stands out does indeed seem like the one by the equator, as you stated. Look at the one above the tree line, then moving to the left side of the tree.

Photos 3-6





So, i could have caught all 3 spots, maybe?

some of the NASA images are of the sun, so if the NASA Sunspot image was flipped, I think the sunspots might line right up.

Could be a helicopter, and a plane higher and further away.

correction:
some of the NASA images of the sun are upside down or inverted, so if the NASA Sunspot image were flipped, I think the sunspots might line right up.

excuse my incomplete thought

That's incredible you photographed sunspots.
Thought that was only possible from space.
Amazing photos!
