Meade Saturn DS114EC newtonian reflector, fitted with an Orion 5.81" full aperture solar glass filter, and a Meade 40mm super plössl combined with a Antares 2x barlow lens. Taken with a Olympus C-750 UZ. 1/650 second, at f/2.8, ISO 100. Cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS.
I managed to get out just a little before sunset to observe, and as I was taking pictures, I suddenly saw a little airplane fly in front of the solar disk through the camera's viewfinder. I had no intentions of capturing this scene, I was just lucky enough to be taking a shot at the exact moment it appeared.
