Some of you probably have seen those

More here.

 

PS, finaly, I got UV filter (still making casing to fit the lens), and I will try to take picture of the Sun (K20D, 800mm Samyang mirror lens, + maybe with 2x extension).

ALARM!!! I hope you know it already but an UV filter isnt sufficient to take images of the Sun without damaging your eyes and the cam as well. You need a (certified) special solar filter for this kind of action, see samples here.

Didn't knew about that....

Don't take that as an insult, I'm working with optics for over 20 years, I know how to take care under high intensities (learned hard way).

Just waiting for weather + free time.
