Notes: I was into astronomy my whole life, but only in my senior year of high school did I buy a telescope. I maintained my hobby throughout college and recently graduated. After graduating, I bought myself a nice mount (Sirius) and a nice scope (80mm APO refractor). I played around with imaging for a little while, and purchased a solar filter about a week ago. This photo was from the maiden photoshoot, the first time I had ever taken a picture of the sun, so I was lucky to have captured the sun.
