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 .

Fortunately the clouds started to thin about 10 o’clock. Thin cloud for the rest of the eclipse but with the sun being so bright was still able to capture some detail.

Practising my imaging run 2 weeks before hand definately helped. I was up and imaging as soon as the clouds started thinning.

Collage of images from 09:55 to 10:35 with 5 minute intervals between them.

Last contact was at 10:38 as I watched it from my camera capture screen.

30 seconds per image with about 330 frames stacked.
