Gregger and Starman,
After viewing all the pictures posted I have to congratulate both of you for capturing these stunning images. Well done to both of you.
John.

HI All,
Fascinating images.I dident know Earthshine was visible during totality, is it brought out by extra exposure? I am surprised Ive never heard of it before.
Regards Les.

Hi Les,

It's very visible but most images are exposed for the detail around the edge of the Sun during totality. My image is a composition of 4 frames - two longer exposures for the surface detail and two for the corona. I've not finished processing yet but I did notice one image that shows both the outer corona and a hint of surface detail in a single exposure. I'll post a link to my results when they are all done...

Just as soon as I've written the Skyguide for the current editon of the magazine I'm working on (5 days in Turkey plays havoc with one's schedules [;)]), I'll finish my eclipse pictures off and post a link to them. In the meantime if you want to see some more eclipse stuff look out for tomorrow's Sky at Night (well - it's more or less tonight's really!) on BBC1 at 00:45 (Monday). It's repeated on BBC4 next Saturday at a more friendly hour. The best way to find out about repeats is to go here...

...and type in "Sky at Night".
