Venus Transit 2012
I had wanted to observe and capture this rare celestial event, but I had nothing to watch it without damaging my eyes and my camera. So what does any computer savvy person do; I Googled it. From what I read; I needed a #14 welders lens to block out the harmful UV rays. Well in a small farming community like Taber, and just one hour before show time, I looked and looked and looked and could not find any #14 Welders lens. The darkest one I could find was a #11, so that is what I end up using. I think they turned out rather spectacular.
