    What kind of damage? During sunset / sunrise the amount of UV is low (that's why the sky appears reddish *hint*). The amount of light is measured and controlled by the camera or you (based on metering results) and therefore it's the same amount of light as if you shoot something else.
    Possible damages can occur if you do something really stupid (Bulb mode) or if you use Live View for longer period where the main sensor is also used. (Alpha systems have 2 sensors, IIRC). Personally I found is easier to compose when using ND8 to darken the viewfinder image.
