Step 6: Update 5-24-12: Solar Projection


I've recently posted an 'ible about how to build a simple solar projection rig.  This is a great way to use your binoculars to observe our closest stellar neighbor!

So far, I've used them to take a look at a solar eclipse, and once the clouds clear up here, I'll hopefully be able to take a look at some sunspots, and one June 5 2012, I'll use this setup to observe the last transit of Venus until 2117!
