This sequence was constructed from crops of frames shot on 35mm film
(1/250 sec. on Fuji Velvia slide film). These are
telescopic shots taken through a Borg 4" refractor
with a 2x teleconverter (1280mm focal length) . The actual times between frames
ranged from a few seconds to a minimum of about 1.2 seconds.
Bailey's beads (parts of the sun's surface seen between
mountain peaks on the moon) were enhanced due to the fact
that our observing site was closer to the edge of the moon's
shadow than in previous eclipses.
