Anyone got any ideas, I took a pic of the Sun using my iPhone 6 it took ages to find the Sun in the camera lens and I proceeded to take a pic but even changing the colour using the edit button on the phone there is no colour on the Sun just a white blob. I took the pic through my Lunt 50 ha, every other pic I take has colour. Anyone help please. :idea:

It is completely overexposed. Don't know if you can control exposere settings in an iPhone.

I have looked on YouTube where I found some videos about adjusting the exposure on the iPhone 6. It is hard enough getting the object in the camera view without trying to adjust things on the phone but I will play around and eventually do it.

you need a rig to hold the camera onto an eyepiece. that should be the first thing you try. Holding the phone there with your hand is never going to work :)

You can easily make one with cardboard and tape, or can get the pro made one off ebay
