Congrats on getting some superb shots Keith, Paul, Jonathan & John. Glad to see that your efforts in braving the elements have been suitably rewarded.

Some nice shots in here everyone! it's been a while since I've been on here, due to being very busy with work and school, but now that I'm on winter break I have a bit of time to catch up. Can't say there's been much to share in my part of the world lately, but I was fortunate enough to get clear skies for this eclipse. I headed to the state capital building (just a few blocks from my apt) and nearly froze my hands off waiting for the moon to line up with the statue on top of the capital! I have to say I'm extremely pleased with the lighting on the building at this time of night  Grin It was nearly a perfect exposure for both the moon and the building. PS (I've posted one more shot on my page... http://tonightssky.org/)

I began to do some preparations for the solar eclipse...  Smiley
Have written down a list of 34 items I need to keep in handy during the eclipse Grin (scope, cameras, tripods, laptop, clocks, thermometer, etc.) - it's a nightmare to get all of this collected and adjusted - but at least it's better than rushing up in an hour before the event. I'd wish to do it in a proper manner, so have planned to make a preparational observing session (with the exactly similar timetable & full equipment) on one of the days within Dec.28-30 or Jan.01-02.

Merry Christmas to everyone here on the forum!  Smiley

Love the eclipse image Tyler, fantastic composition and foreground, I hope it was featured on your local news or papers  Smiley

Excellent image montage Paul, looks like you had a very good sky that morning which just goes to show how much it differed with location. Freezing fog was a real problem here so your images show me what I missed.

Jonathan - beautiful images with the contrasting blues and reds, I wish I had seen that in the flesh.

Looking forward to the solar eclipse...
