TSE 08-21-2017 Nikon D60

The images on this page were captured using a Nikon D60 and Celestron C8 telescope. The prime focus method was used with a f/6.3  focal reducer and solar filter. I unfortunately had difficulty reaching precise focus with this setup. This can be seen when viewing the images in the gallery.  I don’t pretend to be a professional when it comes to imaging and unfortunately it shows with these eclipse images. However, I feel they are still worthy of posting even if it shows what not to do. This is a learning process for me. I hope you can overlook the imperfections and enjoy them.

The images above were used to create this animation.
