    Eclipse processing master Miloslav Druckmüller has applied his magic to my widefield image of the December 14 eclipse which I posted here. This shows two comets (C/2020 S3 and C/2020 X3) which were visible close to the sun during totality. The inner corona in my image is saturated so Miloslav has combined my data with a narrower field dataset obtained by Andreas Möller who was at the same site as me. The resulting image shows the corona out to around 3 degrees, stars to around 7th magnitude, Mercury and the two comets. The final processed images are here:
    Many thanks to Andreas and Miloslav for their cooperation in the production of this unique image..

    Impressive contrast.
