Solar observing on the cheap

£10.00 telescope. Camera in a mobile phone. Baader filter. Ok, it's not going to win any awards, but it was fun to have a go.

Now that is actually rather cool. Pity there are no decent sunspots around at the moment, so you could get a fell for the resolution of this system.

Yeah, I did find myself thinking "ok, so I can see the Sun, but with no detail to be seen at the moment I've got no idea if the image is reasonable or terrible".

Now I'm waiting for another good Sunspot or two so I can see if it's a passable little tool.
