    • I just got an inexpensive solar filter for a telescope from Amazon, and glued some slices of foam to the inside of it so it would sit better on the lens. Definitely want the filter for this, I’ve heard that if conditions are right a tele lens can focus enough sunlight to damage a shutter, not to mention a sensor. I imagine a 600mm could really turn into a reverse laser!
