Last night we had a partial solar eclipse here in the Seattle Washington area. I wanted to look at the eclipse so I used my Tamaya Jupiter sextant with a 7X scope and a dark gray filter and a green filter. Worked great! I had all of my family look through the sextant to view the eclipse. I then had the idea to put my Kodak digital camera up to the sextant eyepiece and I took a couple of decent photos!
Any excuse to use my sextants... ;-)
