Comments: Brilliant opportunity to notice the dust on my sensor! This was the best I could do with a telephoto.

Much to mine and John’s amusement, a merry passer-by on his way to the union (who’s state could only be described as “merry”) screamed:

oh s***! Where’s the MOON?!

  2. Nice! I got some ones of the initial stages of the eclipse but none of the ‘redness’ as I couldn’t get an angle from the back of my garden and it was cold!! Good shots.

  3. I kept going out every 20 mins to grab a photo. John and I were having cold beverages outside. Then he proceeded to have some ice cream!

    Focusing on the niib 238,854 miles away was difficult. I didn’t know where to trust the AF. So I settle for focussing manually til the red AF dot flashed. Locked it at that. For most of them I left it on Auto WB, but for the extra red ones I used flash WB (yeah I cheated).

    Very impressive pictures… I am still a little upset that I managed to miss it.
