Main Question or Discussion Point
I like solar eclipses, total and annular:
The first two are from the "Great Eclipse" of 07/11/1991. For this one, I had to go to lower Baja, Mexico (Cabo San Lucas) to be near the center path of totality. totality was 6 minutes 19 seconds where I was. I think it is about another 130 years or so for one that long.Aether said:Nice pics Labguy! Where did you have to go to see those events?
Sounds like a film camera. That's all I ever used and haven't done any for several years. No CCD for me.Captain Cool Guy said:I recently got the Orion steady-pix for my birthday and I'm have an extremely difficult time trying to use it. I have done afocal photography in the past with out and my wife thought it would be easier with the steady-pix. I have a pretty robust 8 inch Schmitt-Cass, but aligning the camera with the eyepiece is a bear. Any suggestions or comments about the Orion steady-pix???
