Solar eclipse photo from New Zealand new
      #5518712 - 11/13/12 09:15 PM Attachment (33 downloads)

I shot this from near Christchurch, New Zealand. That was about at its peak, since I'm so far south.

Taken with a 5D Mark II + Meade 8" LX200 telescope (2000mm focal length) and a home-made solar filter (using Baader Solar Film) at ISO 500, 1/4000th of a second.

Thanks everyone!

Wow, that looks awesome, as if it's the moon. Of course it is the moon, but not in the way you first think when seeing that. Very nice!

Here's one I put together using some of my photos. It's a shame I missed the start, doh!

That's a really great series of shots! Do you add colour after and how did you assemble them as a strip?

Thanks! Yeah I added the color in Lightroom 4, and then aligned them in Photoshop. Basically I pasted each photo in to one image as layers, then one by one made each layer 50% transparent and moved it until it aligned with the layer below. I did that to all the layers, then moved them across into a line. That way they some weren't higher and some weren't lower, which might distract people.
