Details:
Sunspot 1035 is so big you dont even need a telescope to see it! I used my Canon 500d/T1i and a 75-300MM lens zoomed at 300MM along with a ND (Neutral Density - 1000x) filter and you can clearly see the sunspot. I used my live view function on my camera to avoid looking directly at the sun (dont do that!). Canon 500d/T1i, ISO 100, F16, 1/4000 Second Exposure
