PipingDruid, is the solar filter for your telescope the same material as the eclipse glasses, or is it more of a welder's glass?
Tracey G: 3 1/2 minutes? Wow, that's luxurious. Although still a pretty brief part of the total process. I can make no promises, but I'll keep an eye out for the one in 2024. At the current rate, I'm sure it will be "The Most Spectacular Eclipse Since Babylon Was A Mud Hut".
Dyfn here is the link, it is glass not a film like most glasses. http://spectrumtelescope.com/product/gl ... -38-236mm/ I prefer the glass because they are much more durable and less likely to get the, "pin holes" of the film.
