Solar Eclipse 2017

Solar Eclipse 2017

August 21st 2017 was a special day because it was a solar eclipse day. The last time the solar eclipse like this occurred in 1979, and I was not born at that time. Everyone was excited about it. I tried to find the glasses for more than a week but it was all sold old and even in Amazon, I was not able to get it. I was also not able to get solar Eclipse paper and Solar filter for my lens too.

Doing some research, I figured out that the ND filters that I have will not work. What I saw online was I need at least 16 stops ND filter to take the solar eclipse picture safely without burning my camera sensor. I got an idea, I have 1 B+W 10 stop ND Filter and also Lee 10 stop ND Glass, how about I combined and make it 20 stops ND Filter. So smart Ayush !
