Solar Eclipse MLV filming?
« on: June 11, 2017, 04:20:55 PM »
Hello there,

inspired from this SmarterEveryDay video i am really excited if someone plans to
catch some cool phenomena during that eclipse on August 21st in the states using their canon cameras and make a cool video from it?

e.g. the so called "Shadow Bands" would for sure look better with MLV than with a iphone camera as seen on youtube :D

I don't have a good telephoto lenses, but I could try if you need this footage (600D). I'm not really into astrophotography, though.

More data on upcoming solar eclipses:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_solar_eclipses_in_the_21st_century
Upcoming eclipses visible in Europe (take care, "visible" does not tell you that much)
https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/europe.html
Details linked in list.

If I got it right next total eclipses for Italy will take place 3rd of September, 2081. Don't expect to meet me there ...

I looked in the link from Walter. There are a few interesting eclipses in the next years, visible from Mittelfranken, Germny:

27. Juli 2018: Total lunar eclipse
21. Januar 2019: Total lunar eclipse
11. November 2019: Mercury transit over the sun

And a little journey to Bilbao, Spain on 12. August 2026 presents a total solar eclipse. And in 2026 I will have plenty of time, I guess :)

Btw, Thursday last week I recorded some solar spots using my 6D with ML (MLV crop 10bit): https://seescho.wordpress.com/2017/06/16/sonnenflecken-und-granulation-vom-15-6-17/

Found something for eclipse photography: https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/581411-new-canonmagic-lantern-script-eclipse-magic-generate-and-execute-a-full-sequence-of-varied-exposures-spanning-all-eclipse-phases/

@escho: Bilbao is worth more than a single visit. But I'm afraid visibility for solar eclipses at sunset in a major city at summertime might be a problem.
Lago Enol however sounds promising.
