Eclipse Pics

by wjw on April 19, 2006

I’ve published my photos of the solar eclipse to my web site, here.

I would like to provide photo neep for those interested in such things, but the fact is that these pictures were pretty much sheer luck. I was using a homemade solar filter constructed of cardboard, duct tape, and Baader AstroSolar Safety Film, made by my own ten thumbs. Throughout, I intended to keep my aperture at 11, and bracket every shot by changing the shutter speed. I took at least two more pictures for every one here. At the end of the shoot, I discovered that the aperture setting had changed wildly (I don’t remember when, or to what).

Put it down to the luck of the amateur.

It’s the One Ring!

And the ring has a pretty nice diamond, too!
