HereÕs a variation on creating a time-sequence composite of the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse. In this case, time runs from left to right, from the last filtered partial phases I shot, through unfiltered shots of the rapidly changing last glimmer of sunlight disappearing behind the advancing Moon at ÒSecond Contact,Ó forming ÒBailyÕs Beads, to totality at centre ] The sequence continues at right with the Sun emerging from behind the Moon in a rapid sequence at ÒThird Contact,Ó followed by two post-totality filtered partials to bookend the total eclipse images The C3 limb had a beautiful array of pink prominences The Contact 2 and 3 images were taken in rapid-fire continuous mode and so are only fractions of a second apart in real time Most are 1/4000th second exposures.
