Solar eclipse, Aug. 21, 2017.  Partial phase is starting. Note the line of four sunspots just ahead of the edge of the Moon. The filtered shots were taken at 1/500 or 1/250, f8, ISO 800, 100-400mm lens with a solar filter at 400mm on Canon 5D Mark III Solar eclipse, Aug. 21, 2017, the Moon is starting to cover a line of sunspots. Solar eclipse, Aug. 21, 2017, nearing totality. Solar eclipse, Aug. 21, 2017, unlike the other images in this sequence, taken with a point-and-shoot camera through a telescope eyepiece.  Because it was taken through a telescope, the image is flipped from actual view. Solar eclipse, Aug. 21, 2017, first image of totality and the corona.  Shutter speed 1/250.
