Some eclipse pics from today

great white

Grumpy Old Fart
I'm a bit of an amateur astronomer so i set up my 10" dobsonian reflector today. I have a baader filter (high qual solar filter) so we watched the partial eclipse today. Sunspots were fairly ample and the viewing was good. I held my iphone up to the lens and took a few quick snaps. Please enjoy them for what they are. Too bad the iphone is such low quality, you could see the sunspots clearly, the surface movements, the ridges and valleys of the moon at the terminus, the corona, etc through the scope and that detail just isn't in the pics. Well, better than nothing i guess...
