    We had perfect weather here to view the transit of Venus. I couldn't see
    anything with eclipse glasses and the naked eye, nor did the 4X
    magnification of my sextant reveal it. I tried just the sextant telescope
    with a sun shade slipped onto the eyepiece , but that didn't dim the sun
    enough to see any detail. But I could get a really good view with 10X20
    binoculars and eclipse glasses. It was hard to get the sun in the field
    of view, but once there, it was easy to hold. At 10X, the sun almost
    fills the field of view, so they're perfect for viewing eclipses as well.
