"2017 Total Solar Eclipse"

Shot with 5" f/7.5 ED triplet refractor telescope w/.7 focal reducer/field flattener

photo by Bill and Sally Fletcher, taken from Weiser, Idaho

- The 2017 Total Solar Eclipse was viewed all across the United States as the shadow of the moon raced across the surface of the earth, from Oregon to So. Carolina. The sun's beautiful corona was revealed when the moon completely obscured the sun's direct light allowing it's atmosphere to be seen.

Great detail including arching steamers at the sun's North and South poles are captured in this photo along with a faint view of "earthshine" on the obscuring moon's surface.

This high dynamic range image was created by merging seven different exposures ranging from 1/4000 second to 3 seconds.
