Partial Eclipse Solar Party (Outreach & Images) in Florida | HA & WL | Aug 21 2017

Post by MalVeauX » Tue Aug 22, 2017 1:25 am

Hey all,

I've been absent for a while due to the weather, it's been cloudy & raining for almost 2 months! I didn't buy anything at all for this eclipse as I already had a fleet of equipment ready to go, so maybe that blessed the day as we had a fairly clear day and we were able to watch the partial eclipse, approximately 90% here in Florida at my location, all through peak. It was a great day of grilled food, friends, family, people slowed down to see, showed up, pulled in and shared, I had a little outreach going on in the country side at my dark site property. It absolutely stormed right after, so again, whatever secret sauce was happening, we at least got the eclipse! The seeing after the eclipse was really, really good, until some clouds rolled in, so my images were done in very poor seeing and some clouds.

Setups:

Celestron Omni XLT 120 with a white light filter & 25mm eyepiece (white light visual)
Orion 80mm Short Tube (stopped down to F9.5) with Quark & 25mm eyepiece (HA visual)
Coronado PST with 8mm eyepiece (HA visual)

Imaging:

I focused on enjoying the day and maintaining the equipment for the kids. But I did manage a few shots before the eclipse and during the eclipse. For the high res, I used my Omni XLT 120 with the Quark for HA and with a White Light filter and a Solar Continuum filter. Camera is the ASI174mm. For the eclipse shots, I was periodically recording video, so shot between rogue clouds on the PST with the ASI174MM.

Forgive the bad collage, I have too many photos to share individually of the outreach:

Lovely, especially the crescent sun with proms!
