The Botswana partial eclipse

So far from the civilisation, just close to one small city called Ghanzi, I had amazing time at Dqae Qare San farm of Greg Laws. Thanks to the location just on the edge of large dry Kalahari desert, the weather was favorable to observe the partial solar eclipse in the morning hours of 13th September 2015. By this picture I would like to Greg, who supported the astronomical activities at his place and helped to find the best spot for observing the phenomenon. Even if the Sun was covered by only 17 percents of the lunar diameter, Greg’s Dobsonian telescope was like a window to such detailed view of the lunar limb and the sunspots as well. To capture this image I used Canon 6D Baader MOD, Dobs. tel. 200/1200, ISO 250, exp. 1/250 s (Baader filter).
