Partial Eclipse in Ha from Wiltshire


Recommended Posts

Thank you Sky Gods! You were kind to me and I hope I didn't let you down. I couldn't believe it when the clouds started thinning just at the crucial moment this morning. I had pretty much given up on any chance of seeing this eclipse for myself, but wondered if I might be able to see something with the Lunt 50 in my obsy through the cloud. Absolutely no chance to begin with, so I missed the start, but then thick cloud slowly became thin cloud and then there were even a few momentary breaks in the cloud. Amazing! So, here is the best frame from the session, a bit after maximum. It is just a single frame capture as there was zero chance of grabbing a usable video - there were clouds scudding across pretty much the whole time...





I also tried to upload an animated gif time lapse, but the upload keeps on failing with 'error -200' - anyone know what that is all about?!
