TSE2024 @ Ayer's Cliff, QC

Post by Wah »

Hi everyone, TSE2024 was my 4th attempt and the 2nd successful total solar eclipse.
I am happy that the sky was clear enough for me to see and take photos.

Attached are some pictures I have processed, and more in my Facebook posts:

Wah, can you explain a little more how you did the multi coloured one, what do the colours represent and how were they determined?

Thank you for your reply!
The RGB colors were from 3 sets of images with 0, 45 and 90 degree polarization angles. Since the quality of those polarized images are not so good, I use LRGB to combine the color information with my better corona image.

Splendid !

Do you have higher resolution versions visible somewhere ?

Of interest is the "dark void" visible north of the solar disk. It is not clear from your animation whether is it going away from the Sun, or to the Sun.
Can you confirm this ?

It was falling back to the sun which was not what I anticipated.

Indeed, if some parts of the corona is expanding (while most of it frozen by the solar magnetic field), only very few parts are "falling" down to the Sun. There is another chains of dark voids like this to the south. See here :

You've probably also have these on your images.
