Total Solar Eclipse 13 / 14 Nov 2012

After many years waiting for it, I have finally observed (and enjoyed!) my very first Total Solar Eclipse. It was on 14 November 2012 (still 13 November following time in UT) and I was 45 km south of Lakeland, Queensland Australia (I had to drive during the night trying to escape from the clouds in the coast near Port Douglas). Here you have some of the images I have obtained of this rare phenomenon.

My sequence of the Total Solar Eclipse on 13 / 14 November 2012, 50 km south from Lakeland, Queensland, Australia. I used a Skywatcher D 80mm, F 600mm, primary focus using CANON EOS 600D. All times given in UT and correspond to 13 Nov 2012. Credit: Ángel R.
