My eclipse photography plan during totality was to take a sequence of images with Exposures
tailored to see both the bright prominences and the faint outer corona, so my exposures were a set of 5 images every 5 seconds at ISO 200, f/7 (on my EdgeHD C8 with my Canon 6D and a 0.7x focal reducer) with exposures of 1/500 sec, 1/125 sec, 1/30 sec, 1/8 sec, and 1/2 second. I used the same exposures on my Canon 70D with my 70-200mm lens at f/8. Here are the result of some HDR combines using Picturenaut and then some touchup with the GIMP.
|This is an HDR combine of 5 images taken with my Canon 6D attached to my Celestron EdgeHD C8 using a 0.7x focal reducer.|
|This is the same image as above but with some contrast stretching to bring out the Earthshine on the Moon. I was hoping I'd be able to see it in the longest exposure of the sequence.|
|This HDR combine was obtained with my Canon 70D attached to my 70-200mm lens at 200mm focal length. The exposures were made at ISO 200, f/8, and 1/500 seconds, 1/125 sec, 1/30 sec, 1/8 sec, and 1/2 sec. You can see the dark blue sky along with the bright star Regulus to the left of the Eclipsed Sun.|
|This image is the same as the previous one but with some contrast stretching of the Earthshine on the dark face of the Moon.|
