2010.07 Solar Eclipse Hao
I traveled to Hao Atoll for the July 11 Solar Eclipse. It was spectacular. However, unlike my last eclipse experience murphy's law seemed to kick in. Clouds emerged right around the time of the eclipse so we only saw about 30 seconds of totality in the clear. My camera control software didn't start firing so I had to futz with it. And my telescope got misaligned so I didn't get the full frame of the sun. Nevertheless I did manage a couple of nice shots with great detail of the prominences.
