I bought a sheet of Solar filter material and today I took my first sun photo.

Pretty cool! I'm looking forward to when some more major sunspots come around :)

Very best,

Very best,

They're currently on the decline. 2013 was the last solar maximum and the Sun has an 11 year cycle of activity. 2018-2019 will be the solar minimum (so the sunspots will gradually become less and less until that time -- sometimes going for days or weeks without a single sunspot). Then it'll start to build again and I think 2024 should be the next solar maximum.

I thought there were more than one on the day I took that but I could only see the one. The sun is even less active today.

Yes but you got a lot of facial detail on the sun. It really is a very good capture ! Only image better would be taken with an actual solar scope specifically for sun only .
