Jim,

The star in your photograph is Regulus - Alpha Leonis - not Mercury, but your photos are very nice!

Mark Urwiller

According to the link below, I think it's Mercury. Regulus is much closer to the sun/moon.

This is a screenshot of the video I recorded using my EOS-M attached to a 1000mm meade telescope. Here's a snip of the video leading up to and through totality. (external link)

Here's the setup.

I debated using my 5D3 on this setup since the full frame sensor would have given more room around the sun/moon, but I didn't want to risk damaging the 5D3 if I screwed up.

Here are my shots - first totality. It was an amazing experience. Using Canon 1Dx with 100-400 F4-5.6 L at 400 on a tracking mount.

It's the other way around. Regulus is the star close to the sun/moon. You captured Regulus.

[QUOTE=sandwedge;18433​626]First, I just want to say that I was left speechless by the sight of totality. I don't think there's a photographer alive that could capture totality the way it looks (and feels) live. The best way I can describe it is "Insanely Beautiful".

Agree 100%

Thanks, Mark. I've corrected the caption.

From the Cherohala Skyway just inside the NC border.

Well done, Mike! I was at the Skyway visitor center on the TN end.

One from Columbia MO. We had varying conditions from overcast to blue patches throughout the eclipse. Heaver clouds rolled through a few minuets after totality. Then clear blue skies again. Very lucky and a literally awesome experience! Wish I had more than 2 and a half minuets to experiment with the camera and watch with my eyes.

I was starting to enhance one of my Diamond ring effect pictures (end of eclipse) when I noticed something at the lower right. Is it possible I captured a prominence? Attached is a crop of the area that I just did a little noise reduction on. What do you think? I have very little experience with astrophotography. The shot was done with a 7D and a Canon 100-400 zoom.

Yes, I think you captured a prominence. Well done!

Nice. Columbia was one of the places I considered going since I went to college at Mizzou. I thought it would be neat to get some photos of some of the Columns during totality. I ended up going to Jackson, MO and was rewarded with clear skies the entire duration of the eclipse - despite what the weather forecasters were expecting.

I had 2 cameras going during the eclipse. One was a 5D3 with a 70-200 f/2.8L IS and I had it set wider. It was tied to an intervelometer taking a photo ever minute and setup to manual exposure & to take HDR shots +/- 3 stops. I did this because:
1. I thought it would be a good safety net in case I didn't get settings adjusted fast enough
2. I thought it might result in some interesting photos. This photo is an example of that, but was actually a mistake. The 3rd shot in the HDR sequence got messed up - I think when I manually triggered the camera to take a photo out of sequence with the intervelometer. however, I didn't get the 3rd shot for about 30 seconds after the first 2. So when the 5D3 processed the resulting HDR, this was the result.

Yes, that's what you got! I got a couple as well.

Spring City, TN at Veteran's Park. It was clear skies the whole way through. We had shadow bands before and after totality as well. Was too excited to think about taking videos with the phone. Oh well.

I let Solar Eclipse Maestro do the automated work with the 400mm while I enjoyed the sights. The best part during totality was the frogs/crickets starting up, train horns blaring, fireworks popping, and the crowd roaring. A true moment of epiphany...

That Spring City, TN Veteran's Park was completely like you described. "frogs/crickets starting up, train horns blaring, fireworks popping" I was very happy with my first total solar eclipse.


Trying for Better Images yet again.;)
