I did not Think the sun was going to clear the house behind the obs in time so didn't bother setting up to shoot through a scope.

I was watching the eclips from a bedroom window with the DLSR and 300mm lens when I realised that I might just get a shot from the obs.

Rushed job but got a few avis @ prime through my 10" newt and DMK21 still shot through cloud but its there..

Youtube upload has messed with the surface detail on the sun but you get the idea.

Lovely views at Madley for the SGLX event.

Ha in my TV85 with Quark, but these are using the lunt wedge with continuum filter. Skies were clear for the whole thing, amazing.

Watch the prominences being gradually eclipsed was spectacular, on occasion they were appearing detached from behind the limb of the moon. The dimming allowed fainter proms to be seen.

We also clearly saw the uneven silhouette of the mountainous limb of the moon against the sun. Towards the end, the moons shadow was bracketed either side by lovely prominences. A fab day.

just noticed this thread after posting my pics lol

Shot using a Canon 5D mark iii with a 70-200mm L lens at 200mm f35 at 1/8000 and using a stack of ND filters. focusing was a little hard as i wasnt risking looking through the view finder so was a guess. cropped to size so it wasn't lost in a sea of black sky lol

Alas, I live in north London and the cloud just refused to budge. I was ready with telescope, camera, solar filter etc. but saw nothing of the Sun and Moon. The sky was uniformly grey and it darkened considerably at maximum coverage (looking as though it was about to rain heavily), then lightened again. The birds did quieten a bit and there was very little breeze. I'm quite disappointed as I was looking forward to this event and really hoped the weather would play ball but it wasn't to be. Oh well, 11 years until the next chance *sigh*

Very nice, in the timelapse it looks at one point that it is going to be total but then moves away.

Taken today at a party organized by a professor at my University. A lucky shot, I just plugged my compact camera into the eyepiece and took one quick shot before the others in the queue killed me for the wait!

It's not completely on focus and obviously it's not the whole sun, but I love the eruption visibile right at the upper "horn"!

All a bit of a rush this morning, i was going to view from Glastonbury tor but decided that was way too much of a climb with all my camera gear i changed to barrow mump but on looking at the forecast when i got up i decided i needed to head west to avoid the cloud, so ended up on exmoor. drove through cloudy skies and very thick fog to a spot i know and hey presto, clear skies

this is my first go at imaging the sun, D7100, sigma 20-200 hsm os, home made baader filter. now totally hooked. I've been thinking about getting a solar scope for ages now but nobody seems to have the new lunt 50mm in stock.

I think you must have got up above the fog on Exmoor.  It was lurking here all morning and even now there's still quite a haze in the sky.  Good call :)

Some of these photos are fantastic, and put mine to shame.  Anyway, here are a couple of mine taken with a Canon dslr and a 250mm lens.
