The sun is a lot larger than people think. When we see it in the sky, it looks small (as big as our Moon looks, in fact). However, it only looks this small because of how far away it is. The radius of the sun is 690 million meters—109 times the size of the Earth. To put that into perspective, if the sun were a balloon blown up to about one foot across, the earth would be the size of a peppercorn...

The longer the focal length, the narrower the camera’s field of view and the more difficult it is to target the sun.
