My take on today’s Transit of Venus. I was trying to work out how I could do it and had an insopiration. I was looking at the eclipse glasses I have (from the 1999 WA annular – I tested them yesterday to make sure there were no holes by projecting the sun through on to a sheet of white paper) and had the sudden inspiration that they might be big enough to cover the camera lens. So with some fiddling and argy bargy, I have done it!
Here is my highly technical setup – note the rubber bands from the bunches of asparagus we had for breakfast on Sunday. When the lens is zoomed out – it’s not in this shot because the battery is on the charger – the glasses sit flush against the lens.
