Sunspot 1467 via Binoculars

To the left is an image of the Sun and Sunspot 1467, the Sunspot group that has been blasting out M class flares for the past few days made with  safe solar projection. On the right is the binocular lashup I made to take it. The Pizza box sun screen is required to keep the projected image in a reasonably dark spot.  The image was projected onto a piece of paper stuck to a handy pillar on the verandah.  It was quite clear to the eye, but getting the camera to focus on it was not so successful.
