Eclipse 14th November 2012
Taken at Machans Beach 10km north of Cairns, Qld.
The Bailey’s Beads phenomenon can be seen at the top. The bead effect is due to the irregular surface of the moon and the last/first light before/after totality, and before the diamond ring effect. In this case it’s after totality.
Nikon D7000, Sigma 50-500mm with Kenko 2x converter, at 1000mm, 1/100sec, f16, ISO 400 (small aperture due to 2x converter).
