I was out imaging the sun yesterday and caught a plane crossing. I didn't have the filter tuned just right, but I hadn't caught a plane before. If only it was a little moer centered. Solar Max II on a TeleVue Pronto with an Imaging Source DMK41.

Very nice. You can see the concentrated jet from combustion as well as the turbofan wash enveloping it. Does a dandy job quieting it.

The jet wake caused an interesting effect across the face of the Sun. Very cool.
