Nikon D800 with 85mm f/1.8 lens. Microprocessor-controlled timer set to GPS time.


This composite image was made at Zion Canyon National Park on 5-20-2012. I was familiar with the location and verified the chance alignment using altitude and azimuth data obtained from NASA's web page, and verified in Google Earth and followed up with a scouting visit one month before the event. My home made timer set to GPS time synchronized the exposures to coincide with the predicted local time of maximum eclipse. One final image taken after sunset provided the sky background.
