Ralph Smyth

Lisburn, County Antrim

SkyWatcher 80ED Refractor and Canon 1000D DSLR. All mounted on an HEQ5PRO.

A composite montage of the images obtained with my Refractor/DSLR combo. of the various stages from totality to late Penumbral phase of this spectacular eclipse. I was fortunate in that, after a distinctly ropey start, the skies cleared allowing myself and many others to witness and record this amazing event.
