Here Comes the Sun

On the 3rd of October there's an annular solar eclipse (which, from where I live, will be a partial eclipse). Mostly because of this and partly because I wouldn't mind getting back into some solar observing I've ordered a Solarscope from Green Witch.

While I could probably have done the usual thing of projecting with a binocular or telescope (or even with a pinhole projector) I quite like the idea of having a dedicated tool that's easy to set up.

I'll write more about it when I get my hands on it.

Update (14:19 BST): Just had shipping confirmation from Green Witch. All being well it should turn up tomorrow.
