    It's a hollow shell that goes in between the lens and the camera body.

    It allows the lens to get closer to the subject while keeping it in focus (reduces the minimum focus distance).
    Unfortunatly it also lets less light into the camera, and makes infinity focal distance impossible.

    Haven't played around with the camera very much lately, but since the skies were clear today, I thought I'd try for this:

    The sunspot is HUGE. You could fit the Earth almost 12 times across it.

    Here's another one from today as well but using a different telescope and different solar filter.

    Demz Ballz,

    Does the filter protect you camera? I mean the telescope will sure concentrate the sun's rays on a small area.

    Kinda like a magnifying glass and paper.

    Yup, the filter blocks out (literally) 99.9% of the light before it even goes into the telescope. There are some really sweet solar filter set ups out there that actually let you see the solar flares and stuff (basically makes the sun look fiery), but those start at about $800, which is more than I'm willing to pay.



    Rebel at prime focus:



    And just for the fun of it, here's my scope after 40 minutes of viewing last night!






    I got some kick ass data of the moon last night I'm in the middle of processing right now. Here's a small sample that I have right now. I should have enough to put together the entire quarter moon from last night:
