I live in a small town and would like to make some observations today. However i dont have a solar aperture filter, i only have an eyepiece filter of which i do not trust. So is there any household items, materials i could use safely to save me from from ordering on the net and waiting however for the film to arrive. Someone said DVDs split in in half (1/2 depth/thickness) works but is that good advise or just bad advise? I should say that the telescope is a D= 76mm( but can be reduced). SO any ideas would be great or am i just hoping for something that does not exist. Thank you. P.S I have no idea what this prefix i need to select is about, i am not at school im just an enthusiastic beginner of astronomy.
