Eclipse sequence Publication-01-7 Publication-02-3 Publication-03-2 Publication-01-8
Partial solar eclipse 2015 photographed in Pittville Park, Cheltenham, England using a Canon 6D with 400mm lens and 1.4x teleconverter (560mm equivalent) with a homemade filter made from “Baader Astrosolar Safety Film”.

Towards the end of the eclipse the sun clouded allowing live view images without the use of a filter.

Images available for licence or as prints contact me for details.

SAFETY NOTE: If you are trying this yourself you must use live view and a solar safety film or equivalent filter (Neutral density is not sufficient) to prevent permanent damage to your eyes and your camera. Don’t look directly at the sun and even worse through any magnifying device.
