Solar Eclipse

Just thought I would snap a shot of the Solar Eclipse for you which happens to be going on right now.
The blemish is actually a major sunspot erupting now also.

  9. Dennis, please share the equipment you used. I couldn't see the sun spot through an arc welding filter. Great photo and thanks for sharing!

  10. Hi Paul,

    For the eclipse photo I used what is called a veri-ND filter. It is a special filter composed of two polarizing filters pancaked together. When rotated in the proper direction they cut almost all light through the lens.
    I used my Sony A7r camera and a 70-200 lens. 1/500 shutter, F22
