    Default The Great South American Eclipse (07-02-2019)



    Hello

    Here's a mosaic of yesterday's Solar Eclipse, July 2nd, 2019. I was in Santiago, Chile so no totality for me but a very respectable 92%. The sunlight dimmed considerably during the eclipse's maximum. It was a great experience. The whole country was paralyzed during the eclipse. You could see people on the roofs of corporate buildings, in the streets, everyone everywhere watching the eclipse with filter glasses and the like. I had to watch it during work hours. During the maximum the Sun passed right behind a construction crane and then it hid behind the city buildings, but I kept those photos because that's how I will remember it.

    Taken with a Meade's AdventureScope 80 with a black polymer filter attached to a Canon T7. No tracking whatsoever. No sunspots spotted.



    And a small timelapse made with PIPP and the 127 pictures taken during the eclipse
