I planned only to watch this as I didn’t have a camera to photograph it (so I was thinking) due top the H2/P20 communicatyion problem. Then I had a brainwave.
I was looking at the eclipse glasses I have (from the 1999 WA annular – I tested them beforehand to make sure there were no holes by projecting the sun through on to a sheet of white paper – and had the sudden inspiration that they might be big enough to cover the camera lens. So with some fiddling and argy bargy, I have done it!
Below is my highly technical setup – note the rubber bands from the bunches of asparagus we had for breakfast on Sunday. When the lens is zoomed out – it’s not in this shot because the battery was on the charger – the glasses sit flush against the lens.
Pretty good result, ‘eh? I’m pleased with it.
