First picture taken with my new solar telescope

I just received from Scopetronix the camera adaptor ring and mount to mate my Sony DSC-V1 camera to my Coronado Filters P.S.T. Naturally, I had to use it as soon as possible. I waited for a nice break in the overcast and was able to snap this picture of the Sun:

Full Size (800×600)

This first run made me realize that I need to come up with a good workflow to get the focus and exposure right, as well as tune the filter on the P.S.T. to get desired results.

The eyepiece used for this photo was a 7mm Tele Vue Nagler Type 6.

I really wish that I had a D-SLR camera.
