Eclipse May 20, 2012

We had fairly good conditions for viewing the Eclipse on Sunday.  Wingnut got the Celestron and solar filter set up and we spent two hours "oohing" and "ahhhhhing" over the solar display.  There were some wonderfully prominent sun spots to view as well.  Super cool!  The children invited the neighborhood kids to take a gander as well.  It was a truly enjoyable evening.












I wish I had purchased a solar filter for my Canon, but as it was, I was pretty pleased with the photos I got placing my camera directly on the telescope's eye piece.
