Image of the Venus Transit

This is a composite of images collected from the August 21, 2017 solar eclipse. Images were collected in Sweetwater, TN. I used a Canon T1i camera, F11, iso200, shutter speeds varied. The lens was a Sigma 70 - 300 mm lens. The camera/lens was on a Star Adventurer tracker on a Giottos tripod. A Daystar solar filter was used.

This image is a combination of two photos. The diamond just before C2 and one just at the beginning of C3. I feel these have the best light diffraction patterns of any diamonds I have seen.

Below is a video showing the changes in light as the sun went through totality.
