On Sunday afternoon, May 20, 2012, I set up two telescopes in a public location nearby to view the partial solar eclipse.  Friends and passersby stopped to view the solar crescent.  In the photos you will see an "eyepiece projection" setup (using a simple refractor telescope) to view the eclipse indirectly.  There is also a Schmidt-Cassegrain reflector telescope with a solar filter to view it directly.

We also had fun projecting hundreds of small images of the eclipse through a piece of masonite filled with holes.
