    Maybe you should, not going to get another chance at this for the next 105.5 years. BBB a H-Alpha filter to go along.

    Getting a h-alpha solar scope is not easy. They are all expensive, but alot of them are crappy.

    Cloudy day, not ideal for astrophotography. Ended up with many ruined shots due to wind/inability to focus properly.
    Halo around the sun probably caused by clouds or internal reflections off the corrector plate or solar filter.
