Photographing an eclipse

Recommended Posts

I'm curious if anyone has had experience of photographic a proper eclipse (not the uk cloud versions :hihi:). I will be in the US in August, right under the totality of an eclipse.


I can't take lots of equipment but I was wondering if anyone had tried using welding glass for this king of work? A solar filter is waaaay to expensive.


My digging says that No12 glass will give a 15stop reduction so that should be enough to take a picture of the sun. Obviously looking through the view finder is still a no no but i can use the liveview to see the image.


Anyone had good results with this?
