I modified my DIY homemade solar filter for my DSLR to add a side that will slip snug over my Meade 285 refractor telescope. You can check out my previous post about how I made the initial filter, but it's basically a bunch of poster paper and tape around a $10 square of black polymer.

|Found out the tube was a perfect size!|
|Measured where to cut|
|Cut the cardboard mailing tube with a large kitchen bread knife|
|Kinda rough but it did the trick!|
The end result is this totally low budget totally makeshift solar filter. Fabulous! It still only cost me about $10 to make, and all of the real cost is tied up in the little sheet of black polymer.
