My Eclipse Pix 20170821

My eclipse pix… finally got most of them all together…

Click on the link to see the thumbnail page with links to high resolution images with technical information about the pictures and how they were taken.

I didn't visually see any of the following: Earthshine, Mercury, Mars, or any stars other than Regulus, because I completely forgot about my observing list as I stood awestruck looking at the corona with my jaw on the ground. I did see Regulus in the binoculars, it jumped right out first thing.

I also wanted to look at the character of any shadows cast on the ground by the corona, but forgot to do that also.

I also forgot to take the lens cap off of one of the cameras.

I didn't really mind forgetting all though things though... totality was... well... it left me speechless.

They are brilliant Jerry.

I along with quite a few other Australian based IIS members travelled over there for the eclipse. My family and I were very warmly received by the locals; many of whom thought it quite amazing that we would travel half way round the world to see it . It was a wonderful spectacle and well worth the effort.

Thanks for sharing your pics.
