Solar Filter
« on: March 03, 2015, 03:01:32 PM »
Hi guys - I managed to get a little time to put my homemade solar filter together. I used Baader Astrosolar safety film which is ideally suited for telescopes and binoculars. All I need now is a little sunshine and some clear skies.........chances eh?
Going to be bringing this along to the weekend at Glebe House for the morning of 20th March to see the eclipse......hopefully
