Venus Transit 2012!

I stayed up late last night to make filters to view and photograph the Venus Transit. Made filters for my binoculars and 100-400mm zoom lens, using Baader AstroSolar Safety Film. Messed up a bit when I made the filter for the camera lens by getting glue on it. Tried to clean it as best as I could before it dried, but didn't manage to get it all off. The pics didn't turn out that bad anyway. Had a blast watching the event, which was prio number one. The pictures are a bonus. Please click on them for a larger version.
Will post a filter making video soon. Now I'm back to bed!
