Will post the processed pics tonight. Looks like we Tvm guys need to do the honor of posting the 'full circle' or full ring like shots

We got some good pictures, since we didn't have many guys distracting our shoot and because of good team work!

Aah, I am eagerly waiting!! I wish I'd made that trip to Nagercoil and could've captured some pics too.

Did anybody observe the pin hole effect during the eclipse, using shadow of tree leaves?
It was really amazing to see it happening!

Something like this:

Yes we observed it, made a small pin hole camera with index finger and thumb and the image on the ground looked like the eclipsed sun

Wonderful shots everyone, here is mine with a not so tele lens!
But it was nice when it was cloudy, and I was happy that many people who passed by when shooting in a ground! could get a glimpse of liveview on my camera LCD.

The eclipse was visible only partially here. Woke up just in time for it. Went to the terrace of my building and set up my camera. I took the shots holding an x-ray film in front of the lens.

Here's the first one from my side. Will post the rest of them later as I am on babysitting duty

Pramod, I liked the idea of posting all the shots as a single image thereby not flooding the forum page with 20-25 images. It takes a lot of time to load.

The ring shots comin up!!

Took all with 70-210 lens @210mm. Used the welding glass in front of the lens for framing/focussing and then removed it and placed X-Ray film in front of the lens before clicking.

The Welding glass was not used much in clicking picture because the optical quality of that turned out to be pretty bad. (Unwanted reflections)

Even if we put filters/ welding glass/ xray films in front of the lens but still we need to focus the camera on the sun for a while before we click the picture.

Will the sensor be able to survive during that time?? is there a posibility of the sensor getting damaged in this case?

In DSLR cameras you don't need to worry about this because the sensor is not always open to the focused image - only when you click it gets exposed to light.

Some guys say that the shutter curtain will burn if you keep it focused like that, this also isn't true. Even the shutter curtain isn't seeing the light because the reflux mirror arrangement is redirecting all that light to your eye-piece through which you are viewing the image.

In fact, I kept my camera focused at the sun for quite a few seconds without any filter in front of it. Do damage at all.
