Finding the Sun

20130302-IMG_6172Today we broke out my telescope and managed to locate all of the pieces and parts necessary to photograph the sun in all her glory, particularly the solar filter! (Otherwise, not only would you go blind, but you’d fry your camera and telescope equipment.)

20130302-IMG_6171-2Lots of clouds rolled in, but I am thankful for getting several good shots. And more thankful to dear hubby who patiently got the sun in view and in focus. You’d think finding a huge golden orb would be easy, but it’s not!

20130302-IMG_6183There are sun spots on the top left and bottom middle. Because these were taken with the telescope as my camera lens, the images are reverse of what you’d see.
