The title says it all. At the height of the solar eclipse which was 72% in my sky combined with intermittent clouds I would try to get a magnification fire. The weaker ambient light looked whiter for lack of better words. Strange for sure and the clouds didn't help.

Can we get a fire using the frensal lens from a Tops Turley PSK rebuild?

Solar eclipse sun light PSK fire...GO! The tinder bundle is a mixture of Grape vine bark, beech leaves and yellow birch bark.

Action shots.

Ignition.

Fire via magnification solar eclipse style.

Image

Charred natural materials in this case a combination of charred punk, cedar bark and even charred fluff gave me the edge. The naturally ignitable and black material is prefect for fire via magnification.

Here is a video. Thanks for watching.
