Solar Eclipse November 3 2013 From Toronto

Hi Everyone;

 

Well, it was a bitter but clear morning with a good vantage point for the solar eclipse.  The last time I wrote about an eclipse was a LUNAR eclipse from 2008.

According the information available, I was predicting the maximum eclipse for me to occur at 07:13 EST (GMT -5), and I only expected it to be a sliver.

Indeed it was a sliver.

Here was the Sun’s Information for this day.

Sunrise was predicted to be around 7am, so I was sure the sun would be high-enough for a good vantage.

I hiked out to my favourite spot in a local conservation area, and set up shop to look at the azimuth of 111 degrees east.

With my trusted welder’s HF12 glass in hand, i proceeded to freeze my hands off and take a variety of photos.  Some with the auto setting, some with the program setting, some with manual focus (mistake!), some with aperture control – anywhere from 1/250th to 1/500th.

Most of these are complete junk.

Enjoy!
