I have a Canon EOS DSLR camera and I want to photograph the transit.
I know I need a filter but what kind do I need?
I saw Brain Cox photograph the sun on one of his BBC shows (Wonders of the Solar System) and basically I want to do the same thing.
I think he had a filter that cut the brightness by a huge factor
Also, I don't really know how to use my camera very well. Does anyone have advice as to what settings to use?
