- I made a occulting disc using black electrical tape at the focal
point of one of my eyepieces in order to view Deimos last night. I
just had to tell members what I saw. This is just amazing. Since I
was viewing in bright city lights I was unable to grab Deimos. But
what is so amazing is I could still make out the polar cap and even
surface features of Mars THROUGH the electrical tape. Yep, Mars was
buried behind the occulting tape and still showed detail. My goodness!
Next time the tape will be doubled or tripled up or I'll use
- you may also want to try photographer's tape - light tight stuff.
do you suppose electricity can seep thru that electrical tape the same way
