Attempting to photograph sun with QHY10 11/8/2019 @ 14:00

I attempted to photograph the Sun today using my QHY10 camera on my Sky Watcher Equinox Pro 80mm scope on my Manfrotto mount.



The following photograph with 20mm on focuser scale – not sure how close to focus this is.

In order to obtain this image, I had to reduce the intensity of the Sun – look at my aperture mask on the photo used with Herschel Wedge AND polar filter at maximum setting; and even then the above required light cloud otherwise white-out occurred! This is with lowest exposure setting on Nebulosity 4. Damian advised tonight trying a solar film over telescope in addition to the Herschel Wedge next time
