PhotographerRAMIRO PEREZ DE PAULA
LocationCerro Huiliche-El Calafate-Argentina
Date11/07/2010, during totality
EquipmentSony camera, "point & shoot"
DescriptionOne of the best sights of the 11/7 eclipse was the cone of the shadow of the moon coming to cover our observing site. Usually, when the sun is high at totality, the cone is not that easy to see, but at El Calafate, the sun was very low, so the umbra crossed the site parallel to the ground, and was easily visible and very noted.

EquipmentStellarvue 80ED on Astrotrac with Starlight Xpress M25c and Lumicon Deep Sky filter. 1920s, 23 images. Comet-focused layered over background-focused image.
DescriptionChallenging image since Comet McNaught C/2009 R1 is barely above the horizon while at 52N, the Sun is barely under. Had to take this from an attic window to see low enough, and so 80mm was the largest scope I could use.

DateJune 19, 2010, 3:30-4:10AM
Equipment10" F/4 Meade Schmidt Newtonian on Losmandy G-11 Mount. Cooled Canon 400D DSLR. Images processed in Nebulosity and Photobrush.
DescriptionComet McNaught just before sunrise. 15 minutes total exposure time. This was a challenge as there was little time between the comet coming over the horizon and the start of twilight. All photos taken within 10 degrees of the horizon.
DateJune 19, 2010, 2:35-3:06 am
EquipmentTak Epsilon160, Tak EM200, Canon 450D; further details on the web link, including processing.
DescriptionIt's all on the weblink, including the three versions -- static stars, static comet, and combination. The sky was perfect and I was lucky to catch the comet from a just after 2am, rising over distant mountain ridge. 10 good subs and lots of digital processing (Bernhard Huble method) led to a good result. If you are interested in full-res version for magazine or other use, let me know.
