Sun and Smoke

5 July

5 July

The ancients were able to view sunspots by viewing the sun through smoke. Here member Bob Evermon has captured the sun through forest fire smoke with his Canon 250mm and you can see them for yourself. Bob later tried using the smoke again with his Skywatch  at full power with the Canon SLR with adapters only using the Sechelt Forest Fire as a filter with the result below. NOTE: Don’t look at the sun without the correct protective filter!
