    Cool Where can I get eclipse viewing glasses?

    I'm off to China in a few weeks to view and photograph the eclipse.

    Does anyone know where I can find those cheap cardboard eclipse viewing glasses in Singapore? Previously I got them in an astronomy/optical shop, but that was in Australia.

    So far I haven't had any luck finding them here.

    Many thanks!

    Simple set up is to get a vari-polar filter and you can attach that to the end of a short tube or toilet roll core.
