Just a curiosity question for those that have shot a eclipse.
When shooting Baily’s beads do you shoot with the filter on or off for this short time?
I have read both and just curious if anyone has shot this part of the eclipse.
Thank you,
Tom

+1. Would love to know the answer too. I'm going to be shooting* a 12-stop range of brackets (7) during that time just before, during and after totality. Hopefully that will get everything going on.

* If there is a clear sky. ;-)a

Hi Tom

filter OFF for all totality images, it gets VERY dark .... just be ready to get the filter back on quickly as totality ends

Have fun ... I was planning to get to the USA for the eclipse, but lack of time and money ended the plan

you can see the beading in that second image ... tho a tad of motion blur when shutter was operated. A big lens on an undersized tripod :oops::rolleyes:


also, don't forget the diamond ring effect immediately prior to the beads

Love those pictures!
So take the filter off right before totality to get the star burst of Baily’s beads and then slap the filter back when totality is over.
Thank you,
Tom

Yes, take the filter off about 1 minute before totality. And shoot in raw, because you have to guess a bit with the exposure. These two images are the same raw file processed two different ways. Both were shot using my 70-200mm telephoto.

Love these pictures and that is what I am trying for.
So about one minute before totality take the filter off and take as many test shots as possible to get ready for the star affect and totality.
Thank you,
Tom

and one more thing neither Stephen nor I mentioned earlier
vary the exposure time during totality ... slightly longer exposures will bring out the corona

I don't really have anything worthy of showing that I have done on a digital camera
Maybe Stephen managed some ?

Grrr I don't know how to tag him using the @ doesn't work on this forum

Wow Stephen, love those shots and from what I can see on your pics you went from 1/1000 shutter speed on the first set to 1/25 on the second set. That is a big difference and would not have that it would be that much.
I am going to be bracket shooting trying to get as much as I can and shooting in raw. I am hoping to get one good pic out of all of this.
Thank you for the information and if you can thin of anything else please let us know!
Tom

With all the eclipse shots you have taken who all has seen any stars ?? I've read where some say they could see stars and some photographs show stars in their image but don't know if I believe that to be a true image .

Hi Ron,

Yes, the brighter stars and planets were clearly visible during totality in 2012. If I remember correctly we could see Spica, Saturn and of course Venus above the eclipse. I don't think I spent much time looking for fainter stars though, because all the attention was focused on the "hole on the sky"! Keep in mind that every eclipse is different with respect to how dark the sky gets. You may see more or less stars next week.

Cheers,
Stephen

I have purchased "Solar Eclipse Timer" for my iPhone ($1.99). This app will determine your location and tell you when to remove you glasses and when to put them back on (using that for my filter as well), it will also tell you what to expect both on the ground and in the sky. I ran through a demo run yesterday and I really like it. I think they have an Android version as well.

That is something I will look into. Never thought about something like this.

Check out this short video of a Totality Eclipse . Gives a good idea what to expect right at totality and afterwards . Looks like your Diamond ring effect is best at a few seconds before total totality .
