Images of partially eclipsed sun taken from 9:18 until 11:08 with 10min. interval were composed




This page shows you one of snapshots of my equipment with the totally eclipsed sun taken automatically using a compact digital still camera. On the basis of simulation, I composed shots of partially eclipsed sun with an interval of ten minutes. You can see clearly monitors of a video camera mounted on telescope and a PC put under a tripod. And at that time, I, partly in the picture, appreciated the corona with a binocular.
