The Solar Eclipse of Oct 14, 2023

Maximum Eclipse – South Louisiana
Tele Vue Optics’ TV-85 at F/5.6, Thousand Oaks polymer solar filter, QHY183c astro camera at 1C, 6.8ms, Gain 11, Offset 0. There are 14 frames total in this animation.

I got up early and setup, polar aligned, etc.   Started taking images just before it started and got a few during the eclipse.   After the eclipse, I got a few more images of the sun and its spots.
