Partial Solar Eclipse Astro-Photography


October 24th, 2014 there was a partial solar eclipse at sunset up our way.  I was on the rear deck with the Olympus PEN EPL3 watching it go down.  All shots with the long 300mm zoom lens.


Typical shot data looks like this:
 f/22 1/4000150 mm ISO1000 for the lower light shots and similar settings with wider aperture for the brighter shots - I'd rather everything stay sharp with as big an F stop as I can manage.  No filter, believe it or not.
