This photograph was taken at 5:05pm EDT on May 4, 2005 from the front yard of my home in Canton, Michigan. The Meade Lunar-Planetary-Imager (LPI) camera was used with a Meade ETX-90 telescope and a home-made filter using Baader solar film. Exposure was .044 seconds.

Camera resolution is about 1.3 arc-seconds/pixel (actual resolution lower due to atmosphere). Apart from cropping the image, no processing enhancement has been done.

WARNING: Viewing the sun without proper protective devices can result in permanent eye damage.
