Here's a transit shot from today with the sunspot group 2585 visible. It's the first time I've used my 80D (and Sigma 150-600C, for that matter) to shoot a transit. The 80D's flip screen makes this shot so much easier than my 7D. No more getting on my knees to try to focus in live view! A few extra pixels doesn't hurt either. Thanks for looking!

Great work, excellent image. I'm getting ready to pick up my first solar filter for the Sky 90. I need to start rehearsing for the 2017 eclipse.

Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.
