Hi Ladies,  Most of you probably know this but in case there is anyone out there who doesn't Morgine has given us a warning about photographing the Eclipse.  See her email to me below:

 

I am sending this to YOU because I doubt many people read the Discussion board daily and I did not know this.

You can DAMAGE your camera's sensors photographing the eclipse and looking through the camera is dangerous unless you have a lcd screen. This article tells about putting one of the inexpensive glasses over you lens... one of the lenses from a pair of glasses and you wearing the other pair and if you have a DSLR there are other instructions. Some people in our group might try and take a picture since this only happens once in more than 25, 000 years.. this particular one. It goes for 2 hours. So I thought you could send out an email perhaps to the group members? http://www.usatoday.com/tech/science/space/story/2012-05-19/how-to-photograph-an-eclipse/55063578/1 Much Love, Morgine Take care!
