Total Solar Eclipse 2006, corona
Fig. 34: During a total solar eclipse the IQ sinks probably down to 30. I wanted to take a second series of the eclipse without the teleconverter and needed to change the film because the first was full. I couldn't remember how to wind back the film with the Nikon F100 and the red markings were not visible in the dim light. I wasted precious time by illuminating the camera with my mobile phone. And I started the exposure series at 1/8000s instead at 1s so that the sun appeared during the long exposure phase. Next eclipse will be digital. — William Optics Zenithstar 105 ED Triplet APO f/6, Nikon F100, Fujichrome Velvia 100F, 1/4s, Side, Turkey, 29 March 2006
