Yes, I have been looking at Jupiter and Saturn for a while now. Someone told me that Venus and Mars should also be visible with my telescope. Venus is up these days and sets just before the moon does here in Toronto, but its really small with my telescope, just a really bright star. Also, someone told me that I can use a photographic film on my telescope to view the sun in detail directly from the eyepiece (?). Is there a way I can filter out the "brighteness" so that the sun seems like an ordinary planet and I can see the flares and the prominences with this telescope? Thanks.
