05-20-12 Annular Solar Eclipse - Under the Ring of Fire!

Here's a few pics from my weekend adventure.

My setup - the Meade 12" f/10 3048mm telescope and the Canon 600mm f/4 with 1.4x extender. Both had Canon 5DMII's attached and fired every 15 seconds.

Our very own private viewing location.

The gear with Solar filters attached.

The views with the 840mm lens and through the telescope at 3048mm.

First contact!
