Hello All, I am hoping for some expertise to get going in the right direction. I will attempt my first eclipse photos Oct. 14,2023 and use the experience to catch the big show in April 2024.
I plan to use the following equipment and am hoping for some exposure settings to make this October 14th a success. If you are confident of an exposure setting as the moon starts its transit, I would like to bracket exposures from what you think is an ideal exposure for transit shots. For example; 25% coverage = 1/15th second and so I bracket 1/30th and 1/8th, then 50%, 75%, and totality. I am in south Texas so the totality will be 100% and that may figure in exposure estimates. Thanks for your assistance! FYI, my Nikon D750 is not compatible with the Nikkor 1000mm.
Nikkor 1000mm f/11 reflex(set F/11 aperture)
Ektar 100 print film, but I can put ISO 200 print in one FM3a if that increases my chance of getting some good shots
full aperture solar filter
heavy duty Benco tripod
cable shutter release
Enjoy the eclipses, wishing you clear skies!
