How to safely take pics of the sun

2012 Transit of Venus Across the Sun

These pictures were taken from our driveway in Washougal, Washington on June 5th, 2012 at about 5:30PM. Telescope used was an 8 inch Meade with a Meade Super Plossl 28mm eye piece. Camera used was a Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS. Many sunspots are also viewable in the pictures. Enjoy! Mike and Sandy.
