Filter Telescope

When you use a filter to observe the sun through a telescope what does it look like?

Is the sun still orange or what?
Or is it black and white
Also is it hazy or what

The cheap mylar whole-aperture filter are more-or-less white light. They'll show you sunspots but comapratively little else. To see a lot of detail you'll need to use narrowband filters (in conjunction with the mylar filter) to isolate the individual wavelength of interest. Then the light will be coloured according to the wavelength - red for hydrogen alpha and so on.
