My main solar imaging rig is named Little Big Man... it's the smallest 90mm hydrogen alpha telescope on the planet (I think!) It is shown here set up for high magnification shooting... from the front of the scope - 90mm Coronado Solarmax Ha filter with T-max tuner/ Astro-Physics 92mm f4.8 Stowaway - a very fine triplet apochramtic refractor/ Coronado BF30 blocking filter/ Baader FFC fluorite barlow/ extension tube/ Point Grey Research camera/ firewire connection to my Mac laptop for image capture. Little Big Man is shown riding on my Astro-Physics 900 German equatorial mount. All images are captured and processed on a Macintosh computer using Astro IIDC software by Milton Aupperle.
