As you may recall, I was unable to acquire a solar lens for my camera so I was only able to shoot totality. If you were a first time shooter of an eclipse like myself then it was possible that a few “mistakes” were made in shooting. I had my 200mm lens set up on a sturdy tripod, the shutter release was in place, settings were dialed in (I did 7 shot bracketing) and the lens cap was off. So did it all go well? Not quite. When the diamond ring appeared and everyone starting cheering I had a serious excitement attack resulting in my brain “forgetting” how to adjust the head of my tripod; just too excited.
Once that was rectified it was fire away with the occasional pause to change the shutter speed. I want to do a photo merge of my images but as I’ve never done that before I have a new skill to learn. This is my first effort using a 3 shot merge of shutter speeds 1/125, 1/500 and 1/250.
