How I shot the "Sunshine in Ha" video

The Sun between 28 August and 07 September 2013.

Taken with a Canon 600D through a Lunt 35 while on holiday in Crete.

This shows how!

Music by me.

    It's not necessarily such a glamorous hobby, this photography lark, is it! Keep up the great work.

    Very nice! Did you have any trouble, Dave, achieving focus with the Lunt and Canon DSLR. I haven't tried using my Canon with my LS35T yet and am curious if I need anything else besides a normal T-ring adapter.

    Joel Tonyan It won't focus on a DSLR without attaching a low-profile EOS T-Piece adapter directly to the output of the ERF - and anyway, at Prime Focus the sun looks tiny, so I use a Baader x2.25 Barlow attached to a regular nosepiece, covers a DSLR sensor nicely.
    To fine-tune the focus, I switch to Monochrome - more contrasty in LiveView - then back again for the photo.

    Thanks for the info, Dave. Is this the Barlow?

    Joel Tonyan Yes, that's the one.

    Thanks, Dave. I'm going to order one sometime soon.
