Re: Use Baader solar foil... much safer

I did a quick try today to see how bright the sun would be - will test more over the weekend to determine best exposure -

Stacked a 10 stop and 3 stop ND filter on 70-200 lens + 1.4 ex and then I taped a #10 4" x 5" welding lens (#14 is the darkest) over the lens hood - easily covered the small gaps with gaffer tape

Planning on doing time lapse at 450 shots at 20 second intervals for a 19 second movie (24 fps) for the 2-1/2 hr duration of view time before sunset
