Here's some real nice optic solar filters I found online.

I got started looking too late and am using 2 pieces of mylar from the camping emergency blanket for a whopping $3. I cut the 2 pieces in a 5" x 5" square and used a rubberband to attach them to the lens hood. I then used the PP program to adjust the color and brightness.

Nice, but I think it's a toss up without the detail from the surface.

I'd pick 2 or 3, just because the edge in 4 and 5 look a bit fuzzy.

Thanks, they definitely get a lot of artifacts from the enhancement. I may slow the shutter speed a little too for a little more light.

There is 2 more stops in between each picture shown so I have a decent range to work with.

I live in Eureka. I get off work at 6, then it's dart right to my house and get out my Nikon D90 for some pictures. Now, if only the clouds would leave.....but then again in Eureka, they never leave

I know right. Frustrating. Where on the east side do you live?

Heres a photo i got with an extremly crappy lumix P&S at full zoom and 20 layers of cloud (my way of an excuse for the extremly bad pic) and also photobucket chopped the quality so it now looks terrible

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.

In Vancouver WA, here - the clouds were just thin enough right at the peak to see it with sunglasses. I tried to get a pic myself, but it was still too bright. Right after the peak, the clouds buried it.
