mpm1.jpg - Mid-totality image from Zimbabwe. 127mm aperture f/15 Meade ETX. Fuji Superia 400; 1/500th. Martin Mobberley.
ndj1.jpg - Stills from a video of the eclipse. Location northern Zimbabwe at 31d 56'.861 E, 16d 30'.940 S. Nick James.
ndj2.jpg - This picture consists of a luminance channel (L) made up by compositing 10 frames taken automatically by my camera during the eclipse. This was then unsharp masked and log stretched. The colour (RGB) was then added from a single frame taken near to mid-totality using the LRGB technique. The camera was a Canon T70 running with a command back taking a frame every 8 sec. Film was Kodak Royal 200 and the lens was a cheap 500mm, f/8 mirror lens. Nick James.
rl1.jpg - 1200mm, f/17, 400ASA colour neg; exposures were 1/500 for prominences and probably 1/125 for corona From their positions in the sequence of pics that I took, I'd estimate that the prominence shot was taken around 30 seconds after second contact, and the corona shot perhaps 30-40 seconds later.
I estimate that my location was: 15 42 25 S 29 20 45 E Ray Larsen
