I, like many others, am excited to see the eclipse. I want to view the eclipse through my telescope, however, I don't have any solar safety equipment for solar viewing and I cannot find any online that I can get before the eclipse. Could anyone lead me to a reputable site where I could purchase solar (preferably mylar) film before the eclipse?
Amazon has solar film sheets if that's what you're looking for. It is sold by Amazon for Thousand Oaks Optical. Amazon sometimes has next day or 2 days delivery.
If you know somebody who still owns floppy disks, you might consider recycling their inside as filter. Please test before relying on them for protecting your eyes. I did use them during the last solar eclipse as filter for my analog camera with reasonable results.
