Yay!!!! I managed to photograph a sunspot. I am using a 300mm lens at ISO 100 and F14. I have a Baader solar filter. I am borrowing a Canon 700D for the summer. :-)

Very nice. The upper middle is group 2544 and has ten spots. The bigger spot, middle left, is 2546. This group has only one spot, for now.
