I also photographed the eclipse last night. I took closeups, and they came out well, but they are no different from others.

But the shot I set out to get came out perfectly! 40 exposures on one frame of film...taken at the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse in Florida (between Daytona and Cape Canaveral), the second tallest in the country. Enjoy!

Sweet photos! Thanks a lot for sharing them with those of us who, because of weather, couldn't see it.

Greg, the first shot was taken with a n8008 Nikon. It was recommended, and to of the three other photos like that I have seen (mreclipse.com) were taken with that. I think it was one of a few cameras which can take so many multiple exposures. It's ASA 100, f/5.6 and expsorues range from 1/125 to 15 seconds.

Second is ASA 100, f/22.
