This was a very exciting event for me. I've been involved in astronomy since 1988 and this is my first planetary occultation, and the weather couldn't have been better. I bounced back and forth between my camera and 11x80 binoculars. Images were processed in Photoshop. 1/800 sec. exp. at f/8, ISO 400
