Animation of most of the first half of the partial solar eclipse of October 23, 2014.
Partial cloud cover accounts for varying exposure and lack of focus, though sunspot grouping is visible.
Shout through a piece of high-density graphic arts film (density about 4.0 on a log scale) using a Canon S3IS with a focal length of 432mm (35mm equivalent).
First image shot at 2:03 pm PDT, last image at 3:11 pm, which should have been a few minutes past the point of maximum coverage, a span of about 68 minutes. Average frame separation about 75 seconds (55 frames in 68 minutes) so animation runs at about 300 times actual speed. This version loops five times.
