Finally got round to processing solar flare pictures from Osoyoos

This is the processed result of a couple of shots taken at Jack Newton's Osoyoos Observatory in June 2004.

This was the first time I had used my new Nikon D70 DSLR in anger. Was really hard to get focus. Tried my best and 'bracketted' the shot using different shutter speeds to get good exposure of the flare and also the main disk.

Then took RAW NEF files and procesed in ImagesPlus before combining in Photoshop.
