Martin, my reasons are as follows:

1. Hydrogen alpha views of the sun are full monochrome and using a DSLR cannot possibly show all the detail or image quality that monochrome can.

2. When I used a DSLR as a try out the image was totally red and very dark, no matter how much ISO I applied. It contained little detail too.

3. Trying to process this out is very difficult to say the least, and I was not successful.

4. All the great images in Ha Solar come from monochrome cameras.

Still you could try with the HD DSLR.
