I was able to capture some images with sunspots on the sun while photographing partial solar eclipse.

annular solar eclipse

Watch time lapse video of the Eclipse


As seen from Bangalore in the afternoon of 15th Jan. Interesting bokeh-like shadows were casted during the time:


The shot was taken without looking through the viewfinder with my Nikon D80. It wouldn't have been possible without a tripod. Had clicked some 500 shots and merged them to create a sequence video.


Warning: Never ever look directly at the sun (even during eclipse) through the viewfinder of your camera. It may cause permanent blindness.


A bit larger size available here

taken from my front verandah in Brisbane, Queensland. Only up to 83% coverage from this vantage point. I used a polarising filter on a UV filter to try and get some reflection/ring effects - also lucky some planes flew over. Not as exciting as a total eclipse I'm afraid, although the light did dim substantially and there was a momentary night chorus from some birds. Not used to doing this sort of photography so a bit of noise and a bit heavy on the saturation probably.

I liked the flare from the small hand held 9-stop ND filter I used, so decided to embrace its "artistic" merit! Also, I am pleasantly surprised that the sunspots are visible in this shot, which by the way is almost completely SOOC with only minor adjustments and cropping in LR.

Sunrise about one hundred kilometers south of Newman (Western Australia) in the morning of 2013 may 10, with the annular eclipse in progress.


700mm focal length f/7, exposure 1/750 at 100 ISO with Nikon D7000.

Hybrid solar eclipse of 2013 november 3 as seen from Pokwero, Uganda.


Numerous prominences were visible during the totality. Sun and Moon were almost the same angular size. Totality lasted just 19 seconds.


Nikon D7000 + russian catadioptric MTO 700mm focal length f/7, exposure 1/250 at 200 ISO.

Twin Cities, Minnesota at dusk. A basic Canon point-and-shoot and a piece of sooted glass. There are more shots in the set

A solar eclipse composite done using "The Pellett Method", which I put together a long time ago. I have to get back to this and refine my technique, as the source photos were shot on very slow film, which should give much better results than I got here.

Day 225/365

Composite image stacking images of today's partial solar eclipse. Nikon D200 taking images every 30 seconds using intervalometer. I took images every 4 minutes (total of 38) and stacked using StarStaX. Some high wispy clouds came in during the maximum eclipse so the exposure gets a little dark in the middle until the clouds passed.

Partial solar eclipse of October 23rd 2014 from start to finish- some phases had slight cloud cover obscuring the sun.

Total solar eclipse in Tokyo on May 21st 2012.

As seen from our bedroom in San Francisco - we weren't relly prepared so this was the best I could mange with equipment at hand.

As seen through three pairs of polarized sunglasses. Anything less is too bright and can hurt your eyes.

Solar Eclipse, New Zealand November 2012

We didn't realize there was going to be an eclipse until we saw a bunch of humungous telescopes set up at the Lighthouse this evening. When we got home, we were looking for shadows that would show us how far it had progressed, and there they were on the garage wall, under our walnut tree! (And all over his back, even).


As you can see from the weird-shaped shadows, it was almost a total eclipse.

The partial solar eclipse near maximum from Boulder Colorado. The clouds helped obscure the sun and provided some interesting texture and color- not much processing done to the raw photo here. Note the sunspots visible next to the moon's outline (see also LuxArt's recent catch of the sunspots: A 3.0 (10 stop) neutral gradient density filter was used.

The solar eclipse as seen through two CD-Rs

This was taken at around 2 PM .Bangaloreans got to view about 85 per cent of the solar eclipse on January 15, between 11.30 am to 3.30 pm.
