A bit of a disaster!

Bizibilder managed to fry his camera today whilst setting up to take today’s Sun photo’s.  All was normal until he pointed the scope at the Sun and realised he had forgotten to put the Solar filter on the scope – the sun only had around 10 seconds directed onto the camera (which was not even switched on!) but it was enough to melt the mirror frame and ruin the camera!!  Luckily his rule of NEVER looking directly at the Sun – only imaging with the camera – resulted in nothing more than embarrassment and a big dent in Bizibilder’s wallet for a new camera!
