Antarctic eclipse

Wide field image taken during the total solar eclipse of 2003 November 23th over the Antarctica. The picture was made on board a LanChile Airbus 340-300 at 38,000 feet of altitude (about 11,600 meters), during the Spanish expedition Shelios 2003 (www.shelios.com) dedicated to observe this eclipse. The totally eclipsed Sun is visible over the wing of the airplane. To the right there are two luminous points, Mercury (the nearest to the Sun) and Venus. The landscape presents the “false twilight” effect around the horizon. Note the reflection of the solar corona on the wing of the aircraft.

Seeing rabraha3’s pictures of Andromeda reminded me of mine. I think I’ve posted all of these at one time or another but I think it’s good to put them all in a photoset together. The first two were taken piggybacking on a telescope. The first was with an 18mm lens for 4 and a half minutes and the second was with a 50mm lens for 2 minutes. The third was taken in prime focus for 30 seconds (and a little out of focus shh). I edited them all in Lightroom, the third picture really needing it to bring out the dust, otherwise all you can see is the light from the central core.
