August 21, 2017: First eclipse results

Recommended Posts

Here are a few quick crops of my eclipse results. The weather was perfect, but the return journey chaos. Still, I bagged some decent data.

Diamond ring

Corona

I should be able to get a full animation from first to last contact, but that will require a lot more work

Truly excellent photos.

 

Those are exactly how it looked for us in central Missouri.

 

Did you capture any with Venus, Mercury or Mars in the same shot, they were really cool looking.

 

Thanks.    ....Don

Fantastic Michael - these are the best photos I have seen so far. I love the first photo showing the diamond ring together with the Prom on the right side. Safe journey back home.

Lovely Michael 😎  It was awesome wasn't it?  We too had a very, very, very slow journey back to hotel - but it was worth it!!!

I did get one planet (Mars or Mercury, I'll have to check), but Venus and Jupiter were much too far away

Great shots!

I was wondering what I'd try to image during a total eclipse, and after seeing this and other images I know now it would be a HDR corona.

Do you have enough data to attempt a corona time-lapse? Perhaps some movement close to the disc would be visible over these few minutes.
