Actually, keep it stored alongside your ND filters. That should do it.

The real problem was that you filtered 99.75% of the light entering the front whereas the mirror seal filters less.

But my ND filters permanently reside in the front pocket of my Crumpler, so same difference :-)

Good thing to know about the mirror seal.

It's funny, I've taken numerous long exposure shots, but I'm realizing now that they all tended to be on cloudy days and/or otherwise low light situations and thus I'd never seen this before. I guess I've just been lucky :-)
