Our club was doing a static telescope disply for astronomy day in front of a local Hobby Shop. We had set up several telescopes for public inspection and a couple had solar filters. Just for the heck of it I stuck my Cannon A495 up to the projection of an Orion ST 120 with no filter. The 120 was being used in the solar projection mode onto screen material. I put my camera in maximum zoom and used auto ISO and focus. After a crop and some PS Elements here is the image.
