question

Seems pretty straight forward. I assume the filter would fit either my 18-55 (kit lens) or 55-200. Is the filter pretty easy to take on and off? (so I can take pictures without the filter when the moon is completely covering the sun)
Asked by: Mark H.
It fits on my canon 55-250 and canon 18-55, but only when zoomed. It is only wide enough to fit over the extended lens section, not over the whole body of the lens. Imagine you will be zoomed anyway when taking solar pictures, and I have already tested and gotten a good poic of the sun spot last week.

My 70-300mm nikon lens is 58mm and it fits very well as long as it is it extended from 100-300mm. I have practiced with it several times.

question

What is the neutral density or f/stop number of the DayStar filter?
Asked by: Trevor
I do not know - nothing in the documentation or on the product answers this question. I agree with David R's estimate (1 divided by 2, divided by 2, etc. 15 times (f-stops) gives you 0.0000152. Divide that by 1.5 f-stops yields 0.0000101 (1/1000 of 1%) for 16.5 f-stops. (=1/(2^16.5) = 0.0000108 in Excel).
