Annular Eclipse Oct 2005

Luzern Astro Society

By 9am on eclipse day we had driven 200km inland on the A3. We scouted around for a good place to view the eclipse and came accross a Swiss Astronomical Society camped near Minglanilla with a dozen telescopes and cameras. They had camped here part of the night and started setting up at dawn.

Markus Burch very generously let us view the eclipse through the large scopes he had set up to take professional photos of the event. He is something of an authority on eclipse photography and has had many photos of other eclipses published.

Their photos of the eclipse were a bit sharper than ours. This one was taken By Markus Burch.
