A good astronomer wants to use his telescope at night AND day. For this you need a high quality solar filter. Sunspots, eclipses and transiting satellites, all can be seen clearly and safely when using a black polymer filter. The sun will appear in a natural orange color through your telescope. Buying the sheet and making the filter on your own will also save you a lot of money. Thousand Oaks Optical have been producing high quality solar filters for the past 30 years and we are an authorized distributor of theirs. Worldwide shipping available.

This comes as just a sheet of 'film' but it's very easy to make your own filter from it!
I cut a circle from a cereal box, just slightly larger than my lens. Then I cut most of the center out of that.
I cut a piece of the film to the same size as the outer circle and then taped it to the cardboard disc.
I then used some masking tape to hold this filter onto my lens hood (it was on my lens, in the 'unused' position). And voila!
I used my camera's video mode to find the location of the sun, while it was on a tripod. This way I could just look at the back of the screen instead of through the eyepiece and being tempted to see where I was looking.
We took very sharp, brilliant photos of the recent eclipse, and by playing with the shutter speed I was able to get crisp photos, or ones with more 'atmosphere'.
I am very impressed with this, and I'm thinking we'll also use it to photograph sunspots. It's a useful piece of kit for a homeschool, photographer, or anyone who is curious about what the sun 'really' looks like!
My only disappointment is that there won't be another eclipse anytime soon!
