Widefield Total Solar Eclipse from Wyoming


Recommended Posts

Well, I've finally processed my eclipse data, more than a month after the main event!

Taken with a Nikon D610 with the 24-80mm f/3.5 lens at 24mm f/4. The eclipsed sun is an HDR composite of three exposures - 1/250th, 1/30, and 1/4 seconds at ISO 200, and the 1/4 second exposure used for the landscape. Processed entirely in GIMP.

I wasn't originally planning on photographing the eclipse, but changed my mind on the day, looked up an exposure guide, and just held down the shutter whilst watching the eclipse. Needless to say, I was surprised that anything came out at all!

On the full size picture, Regulus is at about 8 o clock of the eclipsed sun, and prominences are visible at 2 o clock and 4 o clock. (Or at least I like to think so!)

Best viewed at full display brightness!
