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.” Then Nancy & I worked to make it happen.
You can read about our newest image, Eclipse Over Long Pine Key, on our website. 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. This is the first of the 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.
