Weather Affected Eclipse View

Albuquerque was very cloudy on eclipse day. The clouds cleared briefly near max eclipse then closed in at max. I took pictures with 500 mm lens (DSLR Olympus E-620) through double layer aluminized mylar (made for solar observing) then just through clouds with no filter.

Eclipse Through the Overcast

While many wanted clear skies to view the eclipse, I found that the overcast skies here in Lynn Haven Florida gave me a great opportunity to take a couple pictures without special camera lens or skills… other than trying to hold the camera steady!

Ring of Fire

This photograph of the august 21st Total Eclipse was taken with a Nikon D7500 DSLR about 50 miles west of Paulina, Oregon at the Deep Creek Campground in the Ochoco National Forest.  I was initially disappointed in the result, but closer inspection of the image on a larger display revealed I had captured a beautiful image of the Solar Prominences!
