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.
