Wonderful pictures, [U]bichex[/U]. The "sun diamond" effect in the second is great.

Did you use any kind of protection equipment for your gear and eyes?
E.g. did you shoot on live view only?

I remember using baader film filters put in front of the lens back in the film days (abtually they were digital days but with no Live View capabilities). But in this way I could look through the viewfinder (at least a little) and have no fear for my eyes since baader film is supposed to stop harmful IR and UV in addition to the 10-stop reduction.

I use these baader film filters for my teleskope. Of course you'll always have to check them first before use.
