Absolutely stunning, superb deep color and the star field lifts it.

One of the best I've seen.

Hi James

i like your first image, it must be a mosaic or if not have you used the levels tool to increase the the background starfield?

Hi Richard,

The first Images is indeed a Mosaic, i did a 30 sec expose to get the background stars then over lapped a normal shot of the Eclipse which was taken straight after the 30 sec image.

Here is a Animation from the event :D

Image

Sorry for it's size being more than the Normal allowed size if it's a problem then i will understand it being taken off..

Thanks

James
