 I bought myself a telescope late last year after much deliberation on what type to buy.  Ironically, since I bought it, on days when I had the time, it was usually cloudy or really cold.  In preparation for the upcoming solar eclipse, I bought a sheet of sun filter foil and made a filter for the scope and was testing it out this past Sunday.  I also used my camera on the scope successfully for the first time as well and took this image of the sun.  I liked how you could see some sun spots, one up near the very top and then a group of 3 down in the lower part.


  1. Looks like you are all set. Now we have to hope for a sunny day April 8th

    1. Yes but my luck is it will be cloudy and we won't even get rain out of it.
