#66 - Monday, October 10, 2016 - Sun-oculars

I set up my binoculars on the back porch with the two Seymour Solar filters I also got at the star party, since the sun was finally out, and wow, what a view!  

They’re yellow-orange in color, and I could see sunspots!  I held my smartphone camera up and took some images.

I also showed my downstairs neighbors, as well as my friends Joe and Nick.  It was difficult to find the sun, believe it or not – you can’t line it up visually!  So I got within the vicinity, put in my lowest magnification eyepieces (23.9 mm), and hunted for about a minute or two until I finally found it.
