Partial Eclipse from Swindon 09:10 & 09:20 GMT


Mark Griffith

Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

Lunt 35mm Ha Telescope, Skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount and DMK41 mono camera.

Thick cloud to start with and it looked as though I was not going to be able to capture any images.

The clouds thinned a bit at after 9 o’clock. I rejected this data to begin with I as thought it was too obscured by the clouds.

But it doesn’t look to bad and does show some surface detail.

These images where just before the eclipse maximum. I did notice a slight drop in light levels outside at 09:30 in my back garden.
