A Little Thing I Call....THE SUN!!!!!

Aperture: f/500; Shutter: 1/1,500,000 sec.; focal length: 1,250,000,000 mm.

The quick shutterspeed allowed me to draw out more spots than I had expected but the small arc on my SWEET ASS Telephoto would only allow me to capture a small slice of the sun and I think I shot between the solar flares that I saw before I was blinded.

  1. I can't wait to take a pic of the sun with that new Giszo! I bought myself a SWEET ASS Telephoto for my Canon too... Cool! For now, I'm just taking some very interrrrresting images of my neighbours... :)

  2. u r so fascinated by the SUN, like how i am to SNOW... hahahahhaha

    u captured this through your telescope... cool!

  3. Huh? How did you manage f/500 and a shutter speed of 1/1,500,000?

  4. mr fab: I was going to say 'You'll thank me next time you look in the mirror.' But I love you, too much. I really do.

    zb: I....I....I hang my head in shame now, actually.

    anon: To get that fast shutterspeed you just TAP (lightly and quickly, just faster than normal.) the button thing on your camera which trips the shutter. And to get that f/stop you have to do that thing like the guy on The Kids In The Hall who used to say I AM CRUSHING YOUR HEAD while holding his fingers up to his eye. Only you do it in front of your lens.
