My original plan was dull and boring, i.e. making high resolution H-alpha eclipse shots. But the sky was so bad earlier this morning rendered this plan impossible. So armed with my Canon 70D with a 100-400mm lens, and a 20 years old thousands oaks solar filter, what can I do?
I did a field trip yesterday night to see whether the location is suitable or not.
And this was how it looks this morning:-
Gave up? Not yet...
At 0814 (GMT+8), I first saw a hint of the sun...
Then at 0821 (GMT+8), it was even better
Soon I realized that I could take some images which clear sky would not allow, this was taken at 0844 (GMT+8),
Another mug shot at 0835 (GMT+8),
The sun was climbing up, taken at 0844 (GMT+8),
The sky was once cleared enough so that my filter must be used, taken at 0857 (GMT+8),
More shots with terrestrial object at 0920 (GMT+8),
Another one at 0922 (GMT+8),
The last one at 0954 (GMT+8),
Something that couldn't be done with great sky...
