    You need to clean your optics. I can see a spot in your pictures.

    Yeah, I tried to, but it's somewhere inside the camera. I'll try to maybe take it to Best Buy or something to get it fixed.

    I could be wrong but I think he was joking. I believe the "spot" is Venus :-)

    You may be right. Just think, now we all have to wait another 150 years for this non-event to occur again.

    Your opinion matters to me why?

    Dunno, but evidently you feel the rest of humanity stands to benefit from your wisdom. I'm here as a corrective. You have no idea what you're talking about; you're spouting nonsense in an inflamatory way, hence the "Troll" label. You're free to prove me wrong, of course. I won't object if you suddenly stop venting your spleen on other people's instructables.

    The only thing evident here is you projecting. Good luck with that.

    No. I just read your linked article and I still don't either. Tell me, how exactly did it impact you?

    I changed the cover pic, but on the one before, there are 2 black spots, along with others inside the lens. The big black dot is Venus.

    Are you sure? It is all rather remote to me. Fair chance I'll never go to Venus. I hear it is terribly hot there this time of year ...

    Nice job (far better than the pictures from my part of the world - it was cloudy).

    If not there is a little cleaning to be done, but great photos.. got Venus and sunspots. I got a few decent shots by mounting some #14 welders glass to the end of my telephoto lense on my DSLR.
