Awesome Sun Photos From His Backyard By Alan Friedman

Friedman uses a telescope he calls "Little Big Man." The stargazer sets up the telescope for high-magnification shooting. A camera replaces the eyepiece of the telescope. Bing Quock, assistant director of the Morrison Planetarium at the California Academy of Sciences, is a fan. In an email to Yahoo News, Quock called his work “superb,” adding, “His photos are creative, artistic, and absolutely gorgeous…it’s amazing how much detail is contained in each one.” (©Alan Friedman/avertedimagination.com)

The pictures were taken using a camera at the eyepiece of his telescope.

It is so awesome how he could get such beautiful pictures from his backyard.
