Re: E30 with Baader Astrosolar film attached to lens hood of 70-300

Thanks for taking the time to post your efforts.

You might not have had previous experience of taking sun pics but that didn't stop you from doing a bloody fine job,on your first try.
Buying a telescope, come now make your own.:-)
I did in the very early 70's. 6 inch Pyrex lens ground by yours truly and did a
mighty fine job, if I say so myself. Alas the rest of the telescope was not that

impressive, angle iron, sono tube etc, but it all worked and kept me happy for a few years.
Once again thanks for posting.
