Here are a few images of the Solar Photosphere, the outer layer of the Sun. These are referred to as taken in WL (white light), which is the full visible spectrum. Of course you need a good quality filter to remove harmful UV rays and to reduce brightness to a tolerable level for our eyes. For this I use a Baader foil filter which can be safely fastened to my telescope. With this type of filter you can view the sunspots and granulation structures on the solar photosphere. On the pictures below I deliberately added a picture of our earth, relative in size. This shows how big these sunspots really are!
