Guy, I don't understand it even after I read what and how and etc, but I do know that they are awesome pictures, without burning up your camera. I look at your work and I look at mine and think that I'l go back to needle point, but I'll still look at your art work.. As always God Bless all Y'all You in the market for a like new 1965 moel Nikon F with a good assortment of lensLOL Gary

Amazing shot! Is it taken through a telescope? But then I can't imagine how comes this silhouette on the right side ...

Thanks guys.

Don't give up too soon Gary, your killer picture is out there waiting for you to find it.

This is how forest fires really start kamalyn: the sun bumping into trees.

Just my camera with a 300mm lens, poly, and 11 steps (not enough) of ND filters. I really don't recommend anyone do this as it's very easy to make a mistake and blow up your lens, camera, eyeball, or any combination of those three. Almost made a big mistake yesterday by putting on my infrared pass filter instead of a 9 stop nd (they're both opaque black), the danger there is that with the infrared filter it cuts out visible light so you'd be able to see the sun through it without squinting but your eyeball would still be getting the full strength of the invisible infrared so you wouldn't even know until steam started coming out of your eyeball.

Well, I'm satisfied with watching your pic, I think I resign to rebuild this thing.

...the moon! (as the fabulous song Eclipse by Pink Floyd goes). But then you've also discovered the first trees on the moon! Send it to Science Magazine right away!

Good advice Guy to use proper filters and avoid taking direct on sun shots - i got a fray in my new lens of my Nikon camera back in 2002 when shooting a solar eclipse.

Woah. That's a lot of ND power! Incredible.

The sun looks a little ragged here.

An irregular Black Hole maybe, that also suffers under an economic recession?
