I gave the barlow of my neighbour Daniel a try - thanks for that! I took about 15 sessions with 300 frames each and this is the best of it. Sadly there are no sunspots visible at the moment, so getting in focus was a bit tricky. I did not expect to see a lot - there is nothing to see at the moment in white light or continuum. It was just fun to drive over the suns 'surface' at this focal length. My scope looked a bit weird with an image train that long (look at image B) - but if there will be sunspots available in the future, i know how to setup that barlow lens :-)
