Charlie Bates Solar Astronomy Project

Stephen Ramsden in camo and a co-worker checkout Steve's new telescope setup on Saturday afternoon in Hampton, Georgia.  The telescope was configured with two different filters to allow better viewing of the sun.  Note the camera on the far right.  Steve was taking time-lapsed photos which he'll stitch together later to form a short Apple Quicktime video.

It's a new telescope!
Steve switches into Albert Einstein mode (but looks like Bubba Stein).
Steve got some really cool images of the sun. 

You can see them and others on his website.

Thanks for reading.
