This past summer, a ring of fire set over the Grand Canyon. I was there, at Lipan Point, attempting the hardest photographic challenge I've tried yet: to capture the experience of an annular solar eclipse over the Grand Canyon. I think I might have succeeded. At this resolution, the dot of the Moon is just barely visible in the composite, but at full size it's as visible as in the black-and-white crop.

The composite was shot on a 5DIII with the TS-E 24 II. Three masked frames from the seven-shot two-stop bracket make up most of the composite. Another two frames make up the black-and-white crop, which I then layered in with the rest with a bit of Photoshop reconstruction.

If anybody else has attempted to photograph the Sun and something else in the same frame, and managed to retain detail in both, I'd love to see it!

Cheers,

Most excellent pictures, I'd like to see more. Thanks for share.

I too got both the eclipse and the
Transit of Venus, they were very very
crappy pictures taken with a crappy Canon
SX20, so I won't post the embarrassing pics...,
but it was so cool to try.

Here is a CRAPPY shot of the moon a few nights ago...
I know it's blurry, it very hard to focus the telescope
with the camera attached and I was running out of time,
when I get my equipment back from the factory repair
center, I'll have more time and my own equipment, this
one was taken on a borrowed mount and tripod, so I
had to make it quick. :eek:



Here is Jupiter and the 4 Galilean moons. Again, VERY CRAPPY, but it was a real fast shot.


Peace! 8)
