25 December 2000 Partial Solar Eclipse

Below is a sampling of photographs from the partial solar eclipse of Christmas day 2000. All photos taken through a Celestron CG-11 scope (with solar filter of course). Images are all taken using the afocal method with an Olympus C3030 Zoom digital camera. The eyepiece used was a Tele Vue 55mm Plossl. All photos taken from Wilbraham, MA (just east of Springfield MA). Note: the things on the Sun's disc that look like "dirt on the lens" are actually sunspots!
