Great job! These are top notch.

One thing has been bugging me, perhaps someone can answer. Probably a simple answer that has just escaped me.

I kept hearing on the news how great of a science opportunity this was for NASA to see the corona with statements that since the Sun is blocked out they can see the corona better. But we have lots of satellites in space with no atmospheric distortion that provide excellent images and detail of the sun/corona.

sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov...

So how does the eclipse provide a better opportunity than those satellites?


Thank you!

Not that I am qualified to answer your question, but I remember reading about it and I believe it is because the instruments cannot block out the direct sunlight and can get overloaded. So during the eclipse they have a great opportunity to block out 99.99% of the sun and only see the Corona. I am betting they could launch a satellite in orbit of Earth and the moon at possibly a Lagrange point that could use the moon to perpetually block out the majority of the sun but I do not know if that is possible or feasible.


Thanks. I'm sure its something along those lines. They already have satellites with disks in front of the cameras blocking out most of the sun, so they can watch the flares. Probably a little better resolution watching the eclipse from a high altitude.

You did as well or better than most of the pro pics I've seen.

If you are an amateur go take someone's job. You deserve it.

Wow! Those are some nice shots!
Please, don't beat yourself up! Your pictures are amazing!
I'm right outside of Charleston SC, and right before the eclipse a huge storm rolled in. So disappointed.
Thanks for these photos!
