    Here's another... during totality I just shot bracketed images.. this is a composite of 3 to capture as much of the corona as I could while minimizing blown highlights.. the star Regulus is below left

    I'm curious on what technique you used. I have 7 exposures that I can't seem to get just quite right. Care to share your secrets?

    the one thing i do is merge the least 2 exposed.. then merge that image to the next least exposed.. then merge that image with the next etc... but sometimes it is too much.. so that is why I went with just the three... I might try to merge a 4th with this shot but It's been hectic after getting back from Madras, work and prepping for an 8 dayer in the Pickets this coming week... fyi I use Photomatrix Pro.. I find it not perfect but it gives quite a few options

    Depending on what software you have there's tons of ways to do what BaNosser is describing. HDR merge from Photoshop or Lightroom is fairly automated if you have either of those and don't want to shell out the $ for Photomatix.

    What was your camera/lens/ISO/exposure?

    Olympus EM1ii with 300F4 on tripod with remote shutter release.. iso 200.. F5.6.. RAW saved as TIF
    image 1: 1/40 +0.3
    image 2: 1/160 -1.7
    image 3: 1/2 +4.3

    these are from a set of 7 images.. I will eventually try to fuse them in Photoshop but I need more time than I currently have to do it..

    I did a 6 image composite using the Pellett Method described here: http://www.astropix.com/html/j_digit/e_comp.html

    Ends up with a lot of noise, but the detail in the corona is cool.

    Reminds me of Schlieren pictures
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schlieren_photography

    Cool to see the pictures you all took. I didn't even bother to try taking anything, just hung out and experienced it. It was cool to watch the sunset/rise on the steam coming from the nuclear plant down the river, but I didn't even take a picture of that.
