From Geogia to Idaho
Here some of US regions to observe total solar eclipse: South carolina, Georgia, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Wyoming, Nebraska, Montana, Idaho.
According to American Astronomical Society (AAS), telescopes, binoculars, and cameras need solar filters for two reasons: to protect them from intense sunlight.
Another reason is to ensure that you don’t accidentally look at the Sun through an unfiltered instrument. That’s way in every case, the solar filter must be attached to the front of the optical device lens. This ensures that the Sun’s light and heat are kept out of the optics.
Interesting to make video on total solar eclipse 2017? NASA explains very well and also provide safety tips. Since total eclipse is s very rare event, many people will likely to record this moment. Taking pictures and or film it directly. If you in the areas (such Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Kansas, etc) where the eclips are clearly seen, you should notice the tips.
According to NASA, “The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters”. It refers to filter such as “eclipse glasses”.
Use either Optical Device or Eclipse Glasses
Nasa suggests, do not look at the sun through a camera, a telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device while using your eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewer. The concentrated solar rays will damage the filter and enter your eye(s), causing serious injury.
We also suggested to seek expert advice from an astronomer (or at least read their vies) before using any optical tools. The tools may a solar filter with a camera, a telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device. Note that solar filters must be attached to the front of any telescope, binoculars, camera lens, or other optics.
To record solar eclipse 2017 would be very impressive experience for most of us. So don’t miss it.
