Is anyone photographing the eclipse tonight? Or part of it - weather permitting :D

I am having a crack and will be using stacking software.

Hi Rivergirl.
I took up to 10 shots at different times for stacking. I used a 250mm lense on my DSLR mounted on a tripod with a remote cable I built. The results were quite good capturing the true colour of the eclipse.

That sounds great especially with the stacking which makes for a sharper image. It was just wonderful watching the whole event happen.

To the naked eye it looked surreal! This orange red orb amongst the stars - as seen from here :D
