Partial Eclipse June 2021


This is a mozaic of the partial solar eclipse. I've submitted it to show that you do not need to have all the "best" kit to record these one-off events. I used my deep space camera (AA Hypercam 183C Pro TEC) and scope (WO Megrez 72) and added a piece of Thousand Oaks solar filter to the front (I cut a big hole in the bottom of a tin camping mug, glued the red plastic covering from a 6A wire in place to cover the sharp edge then stuck the film to the inside - the cup fits over my dew shield).

Well done, you obviously live somewhere with no clouds which pretty much excluded the whole of the UK on the day.
