Novosibirsk, Russia
I was by the shores of Obskoye More, south of Novosibirsk, Russia to see the total Solar eclipse in clear skies. I took the second and third contact pictures separated by 2 minutes and 18 seconds, using an 8" Meade LX10 SCT, a Canon EOS 5D at ISO 400 and 1/2000-second exposures each. The wide angle pictures ahow the shadow of the Moon approaching from northwest and receding to southeast. Both are through a 12-24 mm lens at 12 mm f/4.5, with Canon EOS 300D camera at ISO 100, 1 and 2 seconds of exposures.
