Total Solar Eclipse 2006 fist contact

Total Solar Eclipse 2006 fist contact: A few seconds before totality I started with the exposure series at 1/8000s, doubling the exposure time with every picture up to 1s. Some parts of the sun are still visible. One can see a protuberance on the upper edge. Picture is a cropping from slide. — William Optics Zenithstar 105 ED Triplet APO f/6, 2x Nikon Teleconverter, Nikon F100, Fujichrome Velvia 100F, 1/8000s, Side, Turkey, 29 March 2006
