So I got out the welding helmet and took a look at Venus transiting the Sun. It was hard at first to make out if the Planet was even there but once you found it it was very apparent and you could pick it out easily. I tried to get a shot with camera/welding helmet combo but nah, it wasn't working.

Hi Greg, thanks. Yep, definitely not optical glass, lol.

Hey, Eric, welcome to the journal.

I have both the mylar film filter and a glass "welding helmet" filter. I tried the glass first and it was horrid. Fine for 1X viewing, but I couldn't get a sharp image through the 'scope. I guess it's not optical glass!
