Ingmar Glass is an amateur astronomer based in Baveria, Germany. Last week he submitted one of his first images of the Sun, which he captured with his recently purchased DMK 31AF03.

By clicking on the images, you can not only see the original, full-sized version, but also a summary of the hardware and software which he used:

In an e-mail to The Imaging Source, Ingmar wrote:

This was my first attempt to combine two pictures that shows solar prominences and surface detail.

This [images were captured at] the ITV 2008 (International Telescope Meeting). I spent some hours to process [them, to achieve these results].

But I am satisfied.

A great thanks goes out to Ingmar for sharing this images with the community. We look forward to receiving more of his work!
