Hi all,

I'm currently working on an article for the website Fstoppers.com on the upcoming Solar Eclipse. I thought I would reach out to POTN members to see if anyone who has photographed a past eclipse would want to have their images featured. I could easily google images and contact those photographers but would much rather give the exposure to photographers in the community.

So if you are interested please post your shots in this thread or direct message me.

Here are a couple of shots of the partial eclipse from October 23, 2014. I shot these using my Canon 60Da (astrophotography version of the 60D), a Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM lens, and Thousand Oaks Optical solar filter. The images you see here are cropped.

Thousand Oaks Optical solar filters render the sun looking orange. Although the Canon 60Da is more sensitive to reds (it's designed to be much more sensitive to Hydrogen alpha wavelengths because hydrogen is the most abundant atom in the universe, so most emission nebulae are rich with it (having a camera more sensitive to this part of the visible spectrum helps capture those details.)

BTW, the sunspot group seen in the first image (taken early in the eclipse) happened to be the largest sunspot group of this solar cycle. It was large enough that it could be seen without any magnification (just your eyes and a solar filter).

This second image was taken much later -- near sunset. Clouds were starting to block the sun, but this created a visually appealing effect.

This upcoming eclipse will be my first time photographing a total eclipse.

I've got one. I'm headed to St. Joe for this next one. It looks to be right in the path of totality.

Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

This one reminds me a little of a Turkish flag from 20 May, 2012, Lincoln, NE, USA
With 1.5x teleconvertor.
