Hi Axl! Thanks for the comment and the "LIKE 1 & FAV 1." I use the green glass from an old welding helmet (my new one is "automatic," and won't darken from sunlight).

Cheers! -Steve

aoriikaさん, コメントと”LIKE YS”をどうもありがとうございます。私の新しい溶接ヘルメットが自動です。それは日光により真っ暗にならない。私は非常に古いガラス使用されます。それを良い状態ではなかった。しかし、私の目はまだ大丈夫です。(-_^)

L3 > you've captured a beautiful image of an astronomical phenomenon is rare. But green does not make the image fidelity :)

Umiyama 海山 on June 24, 2012

Ngo Minh Truc, Thank you for the visit and the comment. You are correct. The welding glass I used for a sun filter was green. Removing the color (desaturation) caused the image to disappear. I think Mylar (silver plastic) as a sun filter might have worked better.

Best regards to you! -Steve
