Visibility III / V

Eemil Pietilä, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Although there has been cloudy weather now, at least here in southern Finland, it became clear today for about an hour. So I decided to try the new full Spectrum modulated Canon EOS 1200D to capture the sun.

The results were satisfactory, as the focus seemed to be a bit wrong, but the pictures were still ok. At the bottom left, you can see the dim sunspot group 2871.
