It's hard to believe it's been six years since the 2017 eclipse! That was a great day! I will share two image successes and two image mistakes I made. I had a relatively good HDR result with processing only 4 images. I also got a nice full sequence of the eclipse. I love doing this. It was seeing a full sequence image like this taken by Fred Espenak in 2000 before I went to my first eclipse in 2001, that inspired me to take eclipse photography seriously. The timing of this sequence is not with an intervalometer, it's done with the clock times generated by my app. A simplified way for amateurs to be successful in getting a sequence. MY MISTAKES! I bought a new Panasonic 4k video camera for this eclipse that I had on my guided mount to get a nice smooth video of pre-C2 to post-C3. I remembered to turn the camera on but did not remember to zoom in! So, I videoed the eclipse with my new 4k camera at a focal length of 37mm! Ugh! I also had a 2nd rig set up at 750mm to image Regulus in the corona. But somewhere along the way during the partial phases I bumped the focus, so my image is out of focus and Regulus is a blob (far left in the image)! Hope to do better in 2024!
