Total Solar Eclipse
Hungary, 11 August 1999
Here are the first results from our eclipse tour to Hungary.
Leaving Siofok at 4:15 AM
On the road: miserable weather at 7:00 AM
Heading back: finally there is hope!
My solar eclipse photos were shot with two cameras:
8" f/4 Newtonian stopped down to f/16, Fujichrome Astia 100. Partial phase with aluminized mylar filter
300 mm f/4.5 catadioptric telephoto lens with 2x teleconverter, Kodak Royal Gold 100. Partial phase with aluminized glass filter
The site: a field near Mezöszilas, Hungary
waiting for totality
The Diamond Ring (1/30 s)
Prominences (1/60 s)
The corona (composite image, 1/4 s - 2 s)

Finally: an eclipse movie assembled from still frames, with intermediate images interpolated using xmorph.
