Sun in H-alpha filter

At Hoher-List Observatory, Alex took out a 90mm (i think) refractor, with Halpha filters, and i was able to put my camera into focus using an adaptor someone gave me, also thanks to his brilliant idea to use a blanket to cover ourselves and the camera so we could see what we were doing . This is the first result, using 2400 frames in RegiStax.
