Our Newest Image – A Gigapan With The Solar Eclipse

When I gave suggestions for shooting the solar eclipse in Miamilink, We didn’t have any plans to shoot it ourselves, but about twenty hours before it started I got another one of my “brilliant ideas” and Nancy & I worked to make it happen.

You can read about our newest image, Eclipse Over Long Pine Key, on our website. This is the first of our large panoramas that we’ve published that uses our Gigapan motor drive to take hundreds of pictures shot with a telephoto lens, and third-party stitching software to get very large and detailed images.  We’ve also put it on the GigaPan website so you can zoom in real close and see birds in the trees (but more pinecones) and sunspots.

Eclipse Over Long Pine Key

Author: Bruce

Although I grew up in Garden Grove, California, I have lived here in South Miami longer than I've lived anywhere else in the world. I've been married to my wonderful wife, Nancy, longer than I was ever without her. We were both teachers. Nancy recently retired after 40 years. I have also spent time as an officer in the Coast Guard, a commercial property appraiser, and an electrical engineering student. Now I'm technical support for Bee Happy Graphics. That means I handle this blog, our web page, and all E-mail, I do all post-processing and printing of the images, I cut mats and glass and frames. If you have a technical question, I would be the one trying to answer it.

  1. Incredible feat of photography and post processing. The amount of planning with only 20 hours time is a salute to your talents. Fantastic image and even more so in person.

Your "two cents worth" is welcome. I don't give change.
