I usually don't do this, but I ventured into the blue and UV to look around today:

Observing the Sun with complex optical systems since 1966, and still haven't burned, melted or damaged anything.
Not blind yet, either!
Light pollution? I only observe the Sun, magnitude -26.74. Pollute that!

Nice disks, Joe.

Don't hesitate to post any of your future forays into the blue and uv (or any other part of the spectrum)!
