Hi Wayne,
look at this one:

http://science.nasa.gov/spaceweather/venustransit/08jun04h/Bassa1.jpg

taken with a plain Zuiko 300 (and solar filter)
Its a pity that this photographer is not on this list, because he seems to
use only OM-equipment for his very fine astropics.

The difference in sharpness in my opinion is mainly due to the use of the
crossed polarizers instead of a dedicated solar filter foil ( which by the
way is cheaper than even a single polarizer)

Betreff: [OM] The Transit of Venus Journal Entry



Olympus OM-2N, Zuiko 300/4.5, Zuiko 2-XA, 2 linear polarizers @ 90
degrees to each other, Manfrotto tripod, Manfrotto 410 head, Kodak EBX,
f22, auto (1/125 <--> 1/500), bracketed -1 and -2.  Scanned @2400 ppi on
Epson 2450, no correction done on the images, just an 800x800 pixel crop
from the centre of each frame.  The blue colour I think is due to the
polarizers not being truly neutral.  I'll put a link to all the shots on
my main table of contents soon.
