I just returned from a 2-day trip to Side, Turkey, where I observed the March 29th total solar eclipse under perfect sky conditions. It was a lifetime experience ! I herewith includeone picture taken during totality with my new Panasonic FZ-30 at 420 mm (80 ISO). More pictures - including a full report of the eclipse - can be found at my astronomy website : http://www.cbabelgium.com. Enjoy !

Hi Tonny,

Unfortunately, due to my private business in Istanbul, I didn't have chance to fly 45 mins. distance by plane and missed this once in a lifetime show of sun (nextfull eclipse will be in 2060 in Turkey) We could only observe it 87% in Istanbul.

However, for sure, this is a really great photo. Which lens/filter did you use?

I hope you enjoyed your Solar-Turism trip to Turkey

Lucky one... here in Finland next total eclipse is about 100 years from now.


There was two flights completely full of amateur astronomers from Finland who went to observe eclipse, I think one plane load went to Black Sea coast while other went to Mediterranean coast.

Hi Iason,

Sorry to hear you couldn't make it to Turkey.

I used the standard FZ30 Leicalens at 12x zoom (420-mm equiv). No teleconverter or other utilities.

Best regards,

Tonny

Thanks for the positive feedback.

No filters used during totality. Just "plain" shooting - using a tripod.
