Obs report, Total Solar Eclipse, 11 July 2010

Here's a link to my blog with a report on the recent TSE. Not too technical, but viewing is not a 'technical' event, LOL! Hope you enjoy!

Fabulous report and images Rob!! To view the eclipse from such a beautiful part of the world certainly adds to the wonderful memory.
Have never seen an eclipse, so cannot imagine how I would feel when the actual moment occurred (i was sooking as read your words ).
Bring on 2012!!

Went onto the next page to check out your set up, amazing. In hysterics again over your quality dewshield, and lego support blocks.
