Proximate Annular Eclipse” 近金環食!

Contrary to the relatively pessimistic weather forcast, we were blessed with almost perfect clear sky this morining. This photo is taken by the hand held collimation on my 10cmF5-BINO(restricted to 50mm) at 7:06, about 30 minutes before the deepest eclipse. I could not make shots of the climax because so many friends, neighbors, and pedestrians gathered to watch it. The ring is split here, but such deep eclipse is very rare and I am very happy to have been able to watch and share the eclipse with my friends.

P.S.: My daughter, medical student living separate, later sent me the right photo she took by the holes of loose leaf sheet. “Sorry Daughter that I forgot to send you the watching glass in advance.”

写真は10cmF5-BINO(5cm絞り)による手持ちコリメート。 最大食から約30分前の7時6分。 天気予報が外れ、ほぼ快晴下で、観察できました。


医学生の娘(こちらに居ないので今回一緒に観察できなかった)が後で右の写真を送って来ました。 ルーズリーフの穴を利用したとのこと。
