Took some images of the eclipse we had a few days ago with my 600. They turned out pretty great, if I may say so myself. ;)

Orion Atlas GEM
Canon EOS 7D
Canon EF 600mm f/4 L II
BackyardEOS (For image sequence acquisition)

ISO 100 @ f/8, shutter speeds from 1/250th to 15s.

Simply amazing!

Amazing photos. Congratulations!
And a little cheating I might say. The Atlas GEM helped in low shutter speeds - this is not the cheating I am talking about  :) -  and the eclipse was visible from US - this is the cheating I was talking about  ;D ;D ;D.

There are three more total eclipses coming. This was the first of the current tetrad, so there is one in October, and another in spring and late fall next year. The latter two are supposed to be more visible from other parts of the globe. I'll only get to see them at sunrise or sunset (which might in and of itself make for an interesting wide angle progression.)
