Location of Photo:

Mount Vernon, Illinois

Date/Time of photo:

04/08/2024 time centered around 1405 local

Equipment:

Astro-Physics Traveler (105mm f/6) with Nikon Z8 for individual images and a Nikon Z7 with Nikon 20mm f/1.8 lens, stopped down to F/2 for the wider view

Description:

The sky was slightly hazy with high cirrus clouds, both of which fortunately allowed for respectable photographic detail of both the surface of the sun and its corona. I used Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop to assemble this collage. Nik Silver Efex was used for the monochrome conversion. A Nikon Z7 with 20mm f/1.8 lens and Lee 100mm solar filter (except during totality) allowed for a wide field of view and correct placement/orientation of solar images in the final photograph. Individual images of the sun were taken with an Astro-Physics Traveler (105mm f/6 refractor) and a Nikon Z8. The partial phases were filtered with a Baader Herschel prism.
