    Nice capture. Looks like you were not far from the totality. Just recently I published a retro of the 1970 total eclipse, and how NOT to shoot it, but am looking forward to another chance in 2017 here in the states. M 🙂

      I was in Munchen for the total eclipse 1999 – but had no camera filter ! I really admire your hand made tool to shoot the eclipse : if I only read you post earlier …. thanks for commenting!

      Time lapsing the eclipse for 2 hours was a great occasion to really feel we are on a sphere rotating around other spheres … odd feeling.
