Just in case you hadnt had enough of the eclipse
« on: 16:22:31, 04 September, 2017 »
It took a bit of processing (188 frames to convert from RAW to .tif to .jpeg, manually align and lots of playing with frame rates in CS4 Animations) but got there in the end... a truly amazing experience - already starting to plan a 2023 return trip... I'm hooked   :wounded: ;) :urock: :thumbup:



Thanks for watching....

Hi Simon
Tremendous result. I was in Oregon. Unforgettable experience. Now planning my next eclipse trip.

Nice one Si,    You'll have a bloody long wait if you go to the states in 2023,    The next one is in 2024 lol     

I'm also looking at going again so I can remember to check the camera battery at totality.   lol

Thanks everyone, appreciated.


I'm also looking at going again so I can remember to check the camera battery at totality.   lol

You could share my power-tank next time Rog... I had with me a 2-way adapter, you'd just need a battery/cable for your camera ;-)
