Well, it isn't big, or centered, or even interesting...

But I just took it about an hour ago, without any help, which is a first for me. I did get the right angle viewfinder, which was an enormous help.

Anyway, for those interested, the data: 1/60 of a second @F3.5, and 16mm.

I feel much more confident about getting some decent eclipse photos.

1. If it isn't centered, there's always cropping

and if it isn't big, there's always enlarging.

But good job right out of the gate.

2. I thank you, my dear Warpy!

Oh, of course. I know.

I just wanted to show what I actually did today.

The photos of the eclipse will (hopefully) be a lot more interesting!

3. What are you using for the solar filter?

Store bought or DIY?

4. It's a store-bought filter, my dear ManiacJoe!

It was manufactured by Seymour Solar, and it's glass. 67mm Threaded Camera Filter is what it says on the container.

It works well. Are you making one, or what?

5. Not sure what I am doing for the eclipse.

I am not going to make it to the full coverage zone.
Seattle is in the 92% zone....

6. Well, you know even 92% is pretty interesting...

and you will need eye protection for the whole thing since you don't get to totality.

Totality is the only time you can look at the eclipse without any eye protection........and you probably already know this. I posted it just in case you didn't know.

I really hope you get to see it!
