Diy Dobsonian

My diy dob mount , it took around 3 hours to make with help from my Wife and daughter. I just need to paint it now .

First sun picture

My first attempt at photographing the sun , i had to do it afocally with a small digital camera and a 20mm eyepiece . I would have done it with the webcam but i need a focal reducer because the image is way too big , next time i might try and do a mosaic . The two sunspots you see are really large hope they don`t produce a flare because its pointing straight at us lol ,we are smack in the middle of solar maximum of the suns 11 year sunspot cycle .
