The Great American Solar
Partial phases of the eclipse are shown from approximately every 10-15 minutes during the event and displayed with an image of the inner corona. I was glad to see some sunspots as they have been a bit absent lately. This piece is available as a metal print up to 8 feet long.
Photographed in Adams Tn with an Astro-Physics 130 f/6 telescope.
This corona composite was made by combining 20 separate images from the total eclipse on 8-21-2017
Solar Eclipse 8-21-2017
The last bit of sun just before being completely blocked by the moon displays a brilliant diamond ring in the sky. Photographed in Adams Tn with an Astro-Physics 130 f/6 telescope.

Lunar Eclipse 9-27-2015
This image was made using 2 different telescopes and cameras. My goal was to capture the starfield mid-eclipse along with the eclipsed moon. This is not something that can be done well during the full moon so the starfield was captured during the new moon. The eclipsed moon was photographed with an 5” Astro-Physics refractor and the stars with a 12” newtonian from my observatory near Bloomington, Indiana. Large prints show a plethora of galaxies in the background hundreds of millions of light years distant.
This shot of our sun was captured with a Lunt80 Solar scope and Flea3 video camera. A stack of several hundred frames were used to make the final image.
