My 10″ Dob DIY solar filter build, in pictures

I recently purchased a $32 piece of 8″ Baader Astrosolar filter film to use on my 10″ Zhumell Z10 Dobsonian telescope. Here’s how I made an on-axis filter cell that fits like a glove and works like a dream, for free, using cardboard scraps and packing tape:

DONE:

And, a cover, using the shipping cardboard from the film:
