    The lens was not a Canon either. It was a Takahashi TOA-150
    telescope. A 6" refractor of excelent quality that costs around
    $20,000.

    However, the camera being a Canon 5D does explain all the noise at
    very low ISO in this picture:

    PS. It wasn't a 5D, but a 5D Mark II [BG]

    That's not noise. The surface of the sun isn't uniform.

    There aren't any. The Sun is at the low point in its 11-year sunspot
    cycle.
