Partial Eclipse at my location

Post by rsfoto »

Hi,

This is what I harvested today. All went trouble free except was a bit hazy due to SMOG. 3 hours and 5 minutes compressed in both videos to about 2 minutes 30 seconds. Thanks for watching :bow2

The first video is very impressive, I am presuming you kept it at a fixed exposure and it gradually got darker and darker, wow!! very moody!

Great videos of the eclipses too, you were so close to totality!

Hi Alexandra,

Thanks and Right. Did not touch the exposure time which is 0.196ms using an ASI 120MM. I use that camera with SharpCap only in order to be able to focus the H-alpha telescope as the old Lucam Recorder software is not ASCOM compatible.

:bow2

Hi,

Forgot to add yesterday.

At max. coverage 12:17 the temperature was 25.2°C from the highest point 27.9°C at 11:32 local time

The time on the graph is not correct. It is one hour ahead.

Great images and Timelapse, Rainer.

I’m surprised you didn’t make it to the centre line though. You can’t have been very far away from totality.

Hi Stuart,

Compared to the distances of the Universe, yes, just around the corner but in terrestrial units in straight line 400km was the shortest distance.

And, I have no portable equipment... :(

Hi,

I just found the image below. At least on Monday the Palm tree branches and leaves were useful :mrgreen:

It is the shadow on the stairs to my observatory.
