I've switched from the moon to the sun. There was enough haze this evening that I thought I would try taking some pics of the sun going down.
Unfortunately by the time I thought to get the TCON the sun was down. So these are all full zoom. The 1st is in auto mode.

I like the last the best Steve. Almost looks like a photo of Saturn.

That's the way it has looked here the last few days, Steve. I'll say that you did a better job of shooting it than I did. I took a few and ended up deleting them. I like the last 2 best.

Thanks for the comments. I used a unipod to keep the camera steady and just kept shooting.

Bob, it's been so muggy and hot here, plus the t-storms we had all day, was nice to see the sun out for a bit.

Great shots, Steve! I tried yesterday to do it myself, but the result was bad- the sun was smudgy and allmost white. Sadly I can't post the shots right now. I did them with my DX7440 in manual mode: f/8, S- 1/750 to 1/1000, ISO 80, WB Daylight. Everything else was exposed nicely. Do You use any filters do get it so right? I will apreciate greatly any advices!!!

Maris, Ihave a circular polarizer on my camera all the time. That might've made a difference.
