Valuable images of November 3, 1994 total solar eclipse were sent to the MMV project by Daniel Schechter. He observed the eclipse at Sevaruyo in Bolivian Andes at altitude 3728 meters. The processing of images in order to visualize coronal structures was not easy because low contrast caused by high clouds. On the other hand, these clouds caused diffuse light, which decreased contrast of Baily's beads and enabled to create very nice images of these fleeting phenomena.
