Beautiful shot! This is the look I had hoped to capture, but the clouds had other plans for me.
Very nicely done sir.

Love the corona detail that you captured and pullet out wit the processing...superb image :bow

That type of corona detail was what I missed the most and left me lacking.

What was the exposure time (or times) that you used to capture this very nice image? And what kind of lens (focal length, aperture)? Which kind of camera did you use and what ISO setting? I would one day like to capture a similarly lovely image.

Hi - the exposure times ranged from 1 second to 1/4000 seconds in full stop increments. Actually I intended to go as low as 4" but evidently that didn't happen. The lens was an Astro-Physics telescope, specifically an AP160 imaging at its native focal length of 1200mm and f-stop of 7.5. The Camera was a 102 MP FujiFilm GFX100II with its larger sensor and shot at its native 80 ISO. I hope this helps, Brian
