    Smile High resolution view of the solar eclipse of March (pics and video)



    After sleepless nights (almost 800 files) here is the video on the last solar eclipse.
    I assembled few timelapse made during the event (for a couple I had to give up because they are too rowdy or because the computer was not able to save all the files);
    I was forced to use clips of only 5 seconds without intervals due to the high speed of the moon at this focal, but I managed to achieve a fairly uniform level of detail (a post processing challenge).
    Given the number of movies I had to give up treatment too complex or it would take me too much.
    I suggest the vision of the video at full resolution and full screen to appreciate the slow movement of the sea of spicules and plasma. With frames so close together transformations are minimal but very fluid.

    Video Youtube HD



    And here few single captures, were I could give more attention to the moon edge and color presentation, hope you will like them
