A solar filter for my 12x DC

I had made so many of them in the past, but none of them were as elegant as this one. This one consists of the 52mm adapter, a small piece of baader film, plus a 52mm red filter. Originally, I wanted to take out the red glass but the retaining ring is too firmly attached, so I gave up, instead, I sandwiched the baader film between the red filter and the adapter.

Here's the result:

It does not look good, but it's more related to the sky condition today. And the bottomline is that, I will only use this DC (Konica Minolta Z5) for video recording.
