Thanks for the comments everyone, glad you liked the pic.
There's an incredible solar telescope at Kitt Peak in Arizona that I visited. You can see the photos of that and the other telescopes there HERE.
Now, that's what I call a solar scope. You certainly couldn't take a picture from inside the one I used - it has an aperture of 60mm. I'll have to read-up on the Kitt Peak `scope, it's not one I've heard of.This video
puts my effort in context, but then - I don't have a spacecraft at my disposal. My title for the vid would be 'The Forging of the Ring of Power'

No problem. I took some more pictures a couple days ago which have come out sharper, I've stitched them together to get the full disc of the sun. I'll post it when I've finished processing it.
