This is a composite of 10 images of the sun's corona during the July 2, 2019 solar eclipse as seen from La Higuera, Chile. The exposures range from 1/4000s to 1s (ISO-200) in order to capture the wide range of brightnesses and the finer detail of the corona. This was my second solar eclipse, and it was as amazing as the first in the US in 2017!0
