At 6 PM, when the transit started, it was completely overcast. I was pretty disappointed. It started to clear up a bit around 8:30 so I put the gear in the car and took off to see if I could get some photos. I have never taken a photo of the sun before so I was concerned about harming the camera. I put on a neutral density and a polarizing filter, set the ISO at 100, the shutter speed at 1/8000 and the f/stop at 32. I am quite surprised by the outcome. Here are four pics.
