I reckoned no one would admit to breaking an astronomical accessory, let alone post a photo of one, so I had a play around with my photo editing program. With hindsight, I guess a solar filter is the one astronomical accessory that should not be tampered with, even in a photo editing program.

So, just for the record, the Baader solar film is in perfect condition and was morphed on my computer using some funky filter in Photo Paint. Please do not be alarmed, these filters are incredibly tough and resilient when handled in accordance with the manufacturer’s data sheet. But, as always, take care, take no risks and always use an approved full aperture solar filter – your eyesight is precious.
