That's strange. Does it have anything to do with the angle or perhaps the technology that was used to take the photos?
Is it normal for the corona to look so different? I'm aware that this photo is from 2001 and that the other is from 2009.
I'm guessing it has to do with the camera used.
It mentioned in the blurb that the Canon EOS 5D was used.
That baby is one bad mother trucker. Drop a nice lens on that thing and you can shoot full HD video, from a digital camera!
Not to mention that it is a composite of 31 different shots, not just 1 picture.
Canon EOS 5D
The full-frame, 21-megapixel DSLR is the first to shoot full HD video, and with Digic 4, Canon is promising low-light performance on par with that of
Nikon's D3 and D700 thanks to improved light gathering and noise reduction, with ISO range 100-6400, extendable up to 12,800 and 25,600.
