Practice for eclipse

I bought a sheet of SolarLite Polymer Filter Sheet which is claimed to reduce the light transmission by 1/1,000 of 1%.

I cutout a piece and attached it to an old 72mm UV filter to use with my 100-400mm lens on my GX8.

The below sample is one result from taking a photo of the sun handheld. Exposure was determined by trial and error. I plan on using a tripod Monday.

The sample was shot in raw, processed in LR.

This is full frame with the only pp being sharpening.

This is a crop of the above.
