Solar eclipse from near Worcester 20th March 2015
Timelapse of the solar eclipse over approximately 2 hours, taken near Worcester after a 3-4 hour drive in search of sunshine. The first 20 minutes of the eclipse were unfortunately clouded out (so missing from the sequence) but shortly after the heavens cleared to reveal a beautiful blue sky. Canon 600D. Each eclipse snap is at 23mm, f/13mm, 1/1000th sec, ISO-800 through a home made Baader Astrosolar filter. 4 minute interval between each snap. Stacked in Startrails. A final snap was taken from the same camera position, without the filter, to grab the foreground which was blended into the eclipse sequence in Adobe Photoshop CS2.
