Solar Eclipse on Dartmoor

It was a bit last minute, but I decided to take a punt on photographing the partial eclipse using just Neutral Density (ND) filters.  Bit of a risk really, could fry the camera's sensor, so decided to use old camera.

Unfortunately, with FX lens on DX camera, plus teleconverter, plus 2 x ND400 filters taped together meant there was too much glass and interfaces to get a clean image.

Ho hum.  I'll show it anyway:

Yes, it's fuzzy, but it's OUR sun.  How cool is that?

More Lofoten Islands photographs soon......
