Making a solar filter for my camera

Using a cheap Jessops skylight lens, a pack of Baader AstroSolar™ film, and a few spots of Araldite®, I am making a filer for my Canon SLR so I can get a few (pea-sized) shots of the sun as the moon eclipses it, without burning out my eyes or my camera’s CCD sensor.  All I need now is clear skies.

I’ll have a practice round tomorrow in the garden.
