Aug 21, 2017 - Heads-Up for a total solar eclipse moving across the USA
If you plan to shoot the eclipse, please do your homework! The sun can damage your eyes and/or blind you and ruin your lens and camera. You must have a solar filter on your lens, NOT a polarizer or ND filter or welder's shield. There are several places online to get solar filters. Filters need to be mounted on the lens, not on the viewfinder. Sunlight coming directly into your lens can create enough heat to damage lens & camera. Also, motels are filling up fast for this event along paths that will be in the total eclipse. There are maps that show the path of the total eclipse from South Carolina to Oregon. The closest area to us to see the "Total" eclipse is Kentucky. Lets hope for clear skies!!!!
