Very nice!
You've capture the surface detail very well.
The ST80 Quark combo is working well for you.
Well done!

Thanks Ken I am quite impressed with the results and still the bigger scopes to call on as well . Very glad I saved money and got the Quark

Mark,
Have you tried processing in ImPPG?
It seems to be giving me better results than Registax....

So if my budget for solar is roughly at around US$1000-1500, is it better to buy a dedicated solar telescope or buy a Quark and use it with my current scope [ST80 or even Canon lenses if possible]?

Tariq,
Not for Canon lenses but most scopes >f5 the Quark is probably the best deal at the moment.

Great discs Mark.The Quark works well with smaller apertures but once you go up to say 127mm or 150mm the seeing really becomes the deciding factor.Back when the Sun was more active I think at my location the use of 150mm of aperture was only feasible on a couple of occasions.I have a Quark on a 150mm scope with an internal etalon but found myself stopping down to 100mm for a better result.
Cheers Derek
