The Sun successfully photographed in preparation for tomorrows Solar Eclipse.
All dependant on cloud of course. Looks like I managed to capure a sun spot as well in the top left. All optics checked for dust and all clean plus the aperture used would result in no dust on the lens/filters showing up. Click to view it larger.
WARNING - People, Be very careful if you're going to photograph the Eclipse with your Compact cameras or phone. Especially, you must NEVER put your eye to the view finder. You risk frying your retina and permanently damaging your sight. Plus you also risk damaging your camera or phone camera.
This shot was taken with two '10 Stop' filters - Exceptionally dark filters that block out a hell of a lot of light AND also via the screen, not the view finder.
