You've got some great eclipse photos on your web site. I'd like to link from it from my 1998 eclipse reports page.. Fred Espenak ***** Thanks very much for sharing your images with us. We had a team in Curacao making coronal images with a high speed digital camera and a polarimeter. Your coverage allows our staff and the team members to see the entire event. Our research teams never get to view the eclipse because they are busy with machines. There are many overlapping structures in the corona; and because the corona is optically thin, they are superimposed in the images. You are correct in noting the faint outlines of the secondary structures in some of the exposures. High Altitude Observatory Boulder, Co ***** It is great to have somebody with a good expertise like you to work on the Carrabean eclipse corona (CEC). Incidently, I already saw your images put on the Web, etc. We were pleased to find that our prediction is ressembling the really observed corona ! At the moment I am trying to find some time to draw the structures of the CEC from many pictures available around and, of course, our own one made in Guadeloupe. Dr. S K ***** Your images are by far the best I've seen of this eclipse. Very impressive! They almost look like what we saw. Did you use a graduated neutral density filter to reduce the contrast? ...
