Taken with a Canon 70D DSLR with a 100-400mm Mk2 lens with 1.4 extender (focal length 560mm f/8) at ISO 200. A composite of 15 frames. Five were of the first partial phase, taken from just after first contact until just before second contact. A filter made of Baader Solar film was used and exposures were 1/400s. Five are during totality, various exposures to reveal Baily's beads at 2nd Contact, prominences, Inner Corona, Chromosphere, and 3rd Contact Diamond Ring. The second partial phase was taken in the same way and exposure as the first partial phase.
