Photography ~ The Sun, 800mm Super Telephoto taken at First Presbyterian Church, Fayetteville, North Carolina, 08/18

We have more SunSpots.

I think these are reasonably good images [08/04 pics] for an object 93,000,000 miles away. In many ways, I wish it were more than a disc and on Monday, a disc with a black disc in front of it, except for those who experience totality. If I risk possible rain and cloudiness, maybe I can get a once-in-a-lifetime capture. I have settled on capturing a banana sun.

 

It is the photographic challenge that inspires us…

Photography ~ Planning5–08/21 Solar Eclipse, 08/18

On-Site Validation and the end of my planning for 08/21 photos

This validation was helpful and will save time Monday. I know where I should place equipment to best capture the eclipse on the First Presbyterian Church Grounds.

It is not where I set up on arrival [above]. The sun’s path is masked more than I thought by the oak tree behind my equipment. Clear sky is necessary for easy tracking and usable pictures–at least I hope so… I relocated here and believe it is best of the options at the church.

Anyway, I will be proximate to my three systems.
