    Re: Eclipse From Wyoming

    I'm seeing some fake composites that were impossible to shoot making the rounds on Facebook...so I made one too using one of my old 4x5 negatives



    I suppose I could clean this up a bit more and send it out to make a digital negative and then silver print it...hmm...

    Here's another shot, taken just a second after the first photo I posted here.

    Didn't try to photograph it, but watched with my wife and some of her colleagues from the steps of the Library of Congress. 81% totality still very impressive! Got some eclipse glasses for free from the Smithsonian's Air&Space Museum.
    For the record, I dug out my Wratten 4.0 ND gel filter (that's 14.3 stops of attenuation) and a quick glance showed that the eclipse glasses are darker than the filter- and warmer in color. So don't use ND filters for any future eclipse viewing.

    Was real thick fog here on the N. California coast, but drove inland 12 miles and viewed a hazy sun. We used a piece of FP4+ film sandwiched in cardboard. Was real fun. I didn't intend to photograph, but used the camera I had in my pocket. Here's a photo (if it's not allowed here, please delete my post):Click image for larger version.

    Lovely Andrew and Bryan, makes me wish I had seriously considered making images.
    Sorry to hear of your troubles Tuco!
    I was up in bull of the woods with many others and had a lovely viewing. what an amazing sunset on the horizon too!
    Unfortunately I think my camera's batteries had bad contacts and never opened the shutter. =(

    For future viewing please only use one of the following for viewing the sun:
    *eclipse glasses
    *Special Telescope Filters (front end! not eyepiece ones!)
    *#14 welders glass
    *pinhole projection
    *Telescopic / lens projection (carefully! don't start a fire)
    http://perkins.owu.edu/solar_viewing_safety.htm
    (you can use other media on your camera, as long as you aren't looking through the lens.


    and if you don't mind eyesight damage you can do as you please.

    Actually, I researched info from NASA before making my filters. So, perhaps you don't believe in NASA provided information.

    Re: Eclipse From Wyoming

    It seems there may be an acceptable use of fogged BW film for viewing:

    Given the inconsistencies of silver content from film to film I would recommend sticking to the numerous other safe recommendations I linked to previously:

    And remember, you can overexpose cyanotype, platinum, and other alt process UV based printing processes.
