Partial Solar Eclipse October 2014

Note the large sunspot complex in the middle of the sun, along with some encroaching clouds lower right.  See other pictures from the Wimberley Fall 2014 trip here.


Partial Eclipse from The Woodlands, TX

May 20, 2012.  I first set up at my regular spot near Shadowbend park, but too many trees.  We drove down to Kuykendahl and pulled off the side of the road by a  pond with a good horizon to the WNW.  We were totally clouded out until the sun peeked through for a few minutes before setting!  I shot away, and kept moving trying to get the best line of sight.  Tripod mounted Nikon D7000 camera with the Nikon 300mm f4 ED lens at f4.5, 1/1250s exposure, ISO 500, auto exposure using spot metering.

Spooky Eclipse Through the Trees

Another view of the May 20, 2012 eclipse from The Woodlands, TX. The clouds and trees are obscuring the sun, and things seem to be on fire!  Same equipment as above, 1/5000s at f9, spot metering on the brightest part of the sun.
