Baily's beads 3 seconds before C2

Single one image of Baily's beads was used for the brightest part of this image. The lower light intensity the more images were used. Total number of used images is 52. Clouds are motion-blurred because the images are aligned on solar corona.

ProcessingComposition of 52 eclipse images - 24 images (1), 22 images (2), 6 images (3). Digital eclipse images were calibrated by means of large number of dark frames and flat-fields, aligned by means of phase correlation, composed by means of LDIC 5.0 software, processed using Corona 4.1 in order to visualize coronal structures. Final processing was done using ACC 6.1 software.
