Full Disc

For those who can't decide if there's not enough day, or not enough night!

*** WARNING ***

Do not EVER look directly at the Sun through a telescope or in any other way, unless you have the proper filters and have been educated in their proper use. This can cause INSTANT eye damage, and remember, you only get ONE pair of eyes!

Hi

I'm using the Philip SPC900NC 1/4" Type which has 659 pixels horizontal x 494 pixels vertical.

Sensor Type CCD Color (Sony ICX098BQ)
Sensor Size / Pixel Size 1/4" (5.6 x 5.6 um)
Min. Illumination 0.9 lux
Max. Resolution 640 x 480 px.

and a LS 8" Meade telescope, my question is about focal reducers, how do I get a full pic of the sun or the moon with this equipment, which focal reducer would suffice?

Thanks for any advice..
