We had a beautiful morning for the Partial Solar Eclipse on the Central Coast of NSW. While there was nowhere near the excitement of the Total Solar Eclipse last November, it was still a great visual sight using Eclipse Glasses.
The path of the Annular Solar Eclipse was over the centre of Australia and up into Far North Queensland, and I couldn’t travel for this one so I resigned myself to a few snaps from home where we experienced a 39% partial – the Moon covered 39% of the Sun.
Without eclipse glasses you just wouldn’t have noticed any difference – the Sun is so bright that even with the Moon blocking 40% of it, there was no noticeable dip in brightness.
I used my Canon 6D, Sigma 120-400mm lens @ 400mm fitted with a white-light solar filter. Capture settings: f/10, ISO100, 1/250s exposure. You can even see a couple of sunspots towards the top of the Sun.
The photo below is my gear used for capture.
Thanks for looking!
