Location of Photo:

Xiamen, China

Date/Time of photo:

May 21, 2012

Equipment:

Borg 77ED, Canon 7D with a 2x Extender, Baader 3.8 solar filter, Takahashi Spaceboy mount

Description:

The annular solar eclipse at Xiamen, China already started at sunrise. We imaged at Xiamen's eastern coast and I started imaging the orange-tinted partially eclipsed rising sun without a filter and thn used a Baader 3.8 solar filter just after the 2nd contact. Right before the second contact, we were lucky to get views of the chromosphere and even a solar prominence when the eclipsed sun emerged from a cloud band.
