    I'm not a die hard fan on Eclipse...

    But I have a friend he is a hardcore Eclipse fan (I don't know how you name him)
    he fly over to Shang Hai, just to see the Eclipse and the weather forecast show tomorrow is raining in Shang Hai too.... Pity for him now...

    Probably a stupid question, but I don't have a solar filter, will a CPL suffice?

    Hmm okay im growing a lil concern because im hearing warnings to not take apicture of a an eclipse with out the solar filter, so lets say I dont have one, and im on a Nikon DX...all i gotta do is use the black paper of the disket and place it infront of my lens? What will happen anyway to the camera if it doesnt have the solar filter?

    I'm using a Nikon D40 and also concerned about that...which is why I plan to use a CPL in addition to the diskette film just in case.

    "Palanggana Method
    Using a tub of water to reflect sunlight, even if the bottom is black, is not safe to observe the eclipse with. Water has a reflectivity of 5%. That is, it reflects 5% while allowing 95% to pass through. While this seems small, it is still 5000 times bigger than the 0.00001 considered to be safe for solar observation."

    I guess the answer is no.

    Also, the diskette film is a ring...guess I have some cutting to do, unless there's another way to work round this.
