Help sun spot on CCD

Hi Guys took a pic of sunset and found a sunspot in the sun. On further investigation found the spot on the CCD.
I tried to place the photo on here for you to check out but it wants me to get it from URL. Well it's on my laptop. How do I do this in a thread. Help please.
Back to sunspot this is no pixel problem looks like a tear drop.
Any help thanks

Re: Help sun spot on CCD

Hi Twiggs, I remember trying to photograph an eclipse of the sun using my Minolta film camera some years ago and with the camera on a tripod by the time I had lined up the camera and set to the highest aperture I noticed this large black area appearing through the SLR viewfinder. The camera's metering never worked after this. Apparently when looking at the sun " wonderful thing hindsight"!!through the camera system the lens path can focus a very hot spot inside the bowels of the camera body. Rather like when we were kids, using a magnifying glass to focus the sun and burn holes in your mates clothing.

I hope no permanent damage has been done to your sensor or mirror Twiggs.
Regards Brian

Thanks Markulous hope this works



Thanks Fiona have found a few dust spots but hopefully this photo will show up more of what I mean.

Brian yes we do forget that digital is still a camera and lens and can be damaged by the sun.

My biggest worry is that the agents here take weeks to do anything about sorting this out. The camera is still under warranty. Well suppose still have my little Olympus. Just thought I may be able to clean this off myself. Any ideas folks.

Hmm, looks more like a smudge than dust (I'm guessing the mark in the middle of the sun, towards the top). Large enough to be on the lens rather than sensor, so I'd check that carefully.

Try taking a shot of bright sky (preferably cloud free), at f32 (or min aperture) - or a bright wall. Dust/smudges will then show up - post shot here

Oh, it's a nice shot, BTW!
