I finally figured out how to use flat frames for solar images which helps a lot with overall brightness. Best %20 of 1000 frames stacked in AS3 and processed with IMPGG and Photoshop CS4.

Very nice full disc capture! more detail than I thought possible with a 50mm, I'm in the market for a Lunt 60 for full disc images but seeing this makes me wonder if I'd be good with a 50!

Check out AstroBin for the LS50Tha. Quite a few images, and I image with it as well. Biggest thing to note is that the stock helical focuser is kind of a non starter for imaging. I have the feathertouch on mine, and focus can be a bit touchy with limited back focus.

I’m happy with my setup but you may still be happier with the 60 if you don’t mind the extra cost.
