After a wonderfully clear sunset sky here on Monday, of course Tuesday 16th's skies were just about solid cloud. How I love UK weather :evil:

As luck would have it, by about mid-eclipse at 10.30BST the clouds had thinned enough in places to allow a few images with my Pentax K110D and Tamron 80-210 lens, 1/4sec iso400 and f4. The Moon was even then quite dark through the clouds to the extent that I was unable to record much at all with my point and shoot camera set to 1600iso/1sec.

Here we are:

from Cliff sorry I'm a bit late, but I was a bit off form for a day or two.

Thanks Cliff!

I've noticed the yellow band on a number of posted eclipse images this time. Personally it reminds me of a poached egg :D
