Solar Imaging with Panasonic GX-8

As expected, GX-8’s a tilt EVF was helpful for focusing. The sky was not totally clear. But I was eager to use a new camera.  Since the sensor got larger, I switched to BORG 89ED (=600 mm).

Unfortunately, the sky didn’t allow me to continue to work including switching to Ha filter. High cloud came up quickly. Further test will continue.

Now I’m interested in taking a lowpass and IR blocking filter out from the camera and making GX-8 the dedicated solar camera.
