Hi all,

there is partial solar eclipse visible in Siberia, Mongolia, and some parts of China and Korea.

As I'm in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, hoping for some nice pix, preparing my scopes and instruments. Unfortunately, the weather doesn't seem to allow me that.... :cry: :cry: :cry:

Anyways, if I will have some pix, then I'll post them here firstly.

clear skies,

Cool!
I always heard you have to use special filters to look on Sun through a telescope, but never thought you can simply project picture on piece of paper.
There's a joke just came up:
Q: How many times you can look on Sun through a telescope?
A: Twice - once with left eye and once with right.

hi moonster,

thanks for the funny joke! hehehe... :D

by the way, you don't even need telescope to project the image, small binocular or even small pinhole of the paper will work great!

I find that looking at the sun directly with your eyes is the best approach.
No, I cant eat my own head.
