About this image

The sky was clear from this site except for some cloud between first and second contacts. Shots of totality were not as sharp as those of the partial phases, due possibly to the large temperature change affecting the aluminium telescope. Soon after third contact a large gap in my image sequence occurred because I was bering interviewed on video by college people. I did plug the BAA!
