1. Wide angle view of eclipse   (~50 MB)            Recorded with Sony PC110 DV videocamera.


2. Closer view of eclipse from HD video camera   (~30 MB)              Recorded with Sony HDR-HC1 in HD 1080i and converted to DVI took off solar filter late so that initial segment is dark. Second segment was taken with filter off but inadvertently left on manual settings set for partial phases, so shows inner corona/prominences. Third segment was when camera was set to  autoexposure, and best shows outer corona.


3. View Backwards from Eclipse  (~5 MB)       Mpeg recording from digital camera converted to wmv.
