Nice one Jim but what about glare around the eyepiece through

peripherial vision aka

I think a shroud is the only practical way to keep out all unwanted

light, including that from the sides. A black cardboard box with all

sides intact would be best, perhaps with a hole to stick your head

in. ;=}



Our goal is to shield the direct light from the sun, which is a

bizillion times brighter and hotter than reflected light from other

directions. A video camera or eyepiece being too hot to touch is a bit

alarming! Here in sunny Texas our design requirements might be a bit

biased...



We certainly can't compete with cardboard and tape for low price and

flexibility though!



Clear skies,

Jim
