Never look at the Sun through any Lens based device. Telescope, Camera, Binoculars, WHY !
Looking at or near the Sun will cause instant and irreversible damage to your eye. Eye damage is often painless, so there is no warning to the observer that damage has occurred until it is too late. Children should always have adult supervision while observing the sun. Using special telescopes and filters that remove 99.999% of the harmful light you can observe and image the sun.
