: Does anyone have experience of photographing a total eclipse? I'll be using an SLR but what would be a good lense/film/setting. Who Knows? it might stop raining for the day!

I photographed the Eclipse in Aruba last year with nice results. I shot through a TeleView Pronto that is a 480mm f6.8 and a 2X converter giving an f-stop of f16, using 100 asa color neg. film I shot at 1/60th sec down to about a second during totality thet gave nice corona out to about a full solar radius. the partial phase were shot through a Thousan Oaks solar filter at about 1/125th. Baileys beads w/o filter at 1/1000 then down through 1/250 for chromosphere and prominces. A good book to read is the Cambridge Eclipse Photoraphy Guide by Pasachoff and Covington (Cambridge University Press)Hope you get to see it! Regards Bob LaPree
