Challenge: Solar Eclipse 2017 (Standard Editing*)
Lens: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS
Location: Albany, Oregon
Date: Aug 23, 2017
Date Uploaded: Aug 23, 2017

Composition of 17 exposures taken from 6 RAW images ranging in shutter speed from 1/640th to 1 second. It's hard not to wind up with some ring artifact, but I did my best with my rusty PS skills.

Mercury is hardly ever seen with the naked eye and is the small dot to the lower left. I like poetic titles. I also like to take liberties with Shakespeare.

Fun to enter a shot after many years...

Really cool! What filter(s) did you use to get the black moon but light blue background? Awesome corona detail.
