Sincere apologies for the awful quality of my video. The simulator will more than make up for it. Since the weather in Southern California is uncooperative (blasted clouds) I may miss it entirely and need to wait for 2117 to roll around. I’ll still be able to haul out a solar scope by then, right?
If the sun does come out, I will be using a simple homemade Mylar filter to cover my camera lens to take a few pics. It worked very well with the recent partial eclipse using some scrap from a toy; this time I intend to buy a sheet of film fit for the purpose.
