Total Solar Eclipse 2006

Total Solar Eclipse 2006: The partial phase prior to the total solar eclipse. The moon is moving across the solar disk. With eyepiece and eye one could see mountains on the moon's edge. They are not visible with this scale here. The three spots on the left edge of the sun are sunspots in the sun's photosphere and not on the CCD sensor. — William Optics ZenithStar 105 ED Triplet APO, Nikon 2x Teleconverter, Nikon D70, Side, Turkey, 29 March 2006
