Solar photography is actually more difficult than planetary in many ways. With CCD photography, the contrast on the computer monitor is low because of the brightness around you. One must find a way to decrease the brightness around the computer screen so you can actually see the sun. Many methods have been tried ranging from putting large boxes around the monitor to covering your head with a blanket and everything in between. I have found that window blackout material seems to work the best for me. My current equipment consists of an Orion EON-120 Semi-Apo refractor and a Herschel Wedge.
