Eclipse panorama

This fascinating eclipse panorama was taken by Kris Delcourte not very far from our observing place in Gobi desert. The panorama consists of 5 parts (five positions of the camera) and each part is a composition of 6 images with exposure range 1/8 s to 1.3 s. All panorama images were taken during 49 seconds. Our wide-angle image was used for the visualization of the neighborhood of the Sun. Totally 85 eclipse images were used for this image creation (30 panorama, 55 solar neighborhood).
