    mick, the position of the circle (i take it you mean the umbral boundary) constantly moves throughout the duration of the eclipse. However, it should look the same from any place on earth at any particular time (follow GMT/UTC to be in sync).

    Lady, maybe can post some of your members' pics...? Also, any nice Mars shots from them? Mars opposition was last week 9th April, and closest approach to earth (within the last 6 years, I think) came a few days later on the 14th. I did visual observation over the past weekend but wasn't up to doing any photography. And Jupiter is still quite a magnificent view although the January opposition is long over. Saturn will be reaching opposition next month...but so far away it's miserably tiny on my 4" tele.....

    I will try to post the pics as soon as i can. I am sure they wont mind it much but i will ask for permission. Sharing across the world is always good and an easy way to see what others see so far away.
    Mick.. yeah.. time flies

    Magnificent, mike! You're simply the best MW photographer in my books......especially considering the amount of light pollution you had to deal with in those shots!

    i used a manual ND filter ......by using my palm to cover part of the lens for certain amount of time to offset the light pollution. some use a black card.

    Neat trick, shading with your hands! It certainly makes your shots so much more dramatic than most of those `technically perfect' MW images from guys shooting in totally dark skies.

    Wow, that straight line MW, horizon to horizon shot really takes the cake. What kind of focal length fish eye did you use?

    was lucky with the weather over the weekend. wasn't so lucky 2 weeks ago with clouds and thunderstorm. nothing else to shoot so had some fun playing around with different settings. this shot was with the white balance set at 10000K and +7 on the magenta shift

    It's being quite a while without any new stuff.....

    Jupiter was at opposition around midnight 6 Feb/7 Feb. Sky wasn't good then. However this morning USJ skies turned out to be excellent, managed to grab this image of the Giant planet....



    Next planetary shoot coming up soon - Saturn's opposition will be May 23rd, don't miss it!
