Default Sunspots with an FZ-150..!

Sea mist makes a handy filter for eyeballing Sunspots...!

Imagine how huge those spots must be to get a shot from 93 million miles.

That is pretty amazing, weren't you nervous about pointing the camera at the sun, even with mist?

Saly... nope... lol... though the mist was pretty thick and consistent, so no chance of the mist suddenly breaking.
Thanks Alex...

Great! Did you use any filter? We never get this color for the sun here. It's always red-orange for a few minutes at sunrise and after that I don't risk pointing the camera at the sun.

No filter was used- just the natural sea mist enabling a shot at the Sun.
The first image is obviously digitally manipulated to bring out the Sunspots- the second image is "as is"....
The Sun is the same colour here also,Raghu...
