CCD vs Film? Lots of time vs no patience? Alright, this is your place to discuss all the astrophotography what's and what's not. You can discuss about techniques, accessories, cameras, whatever....just make sure you also post some nice photos here too!

The astronomical event of the year has to be the annular solar eclipse on 26 Dec 2019. Here are the images taken at the Esplanade Waterfront during the annular phase of the eclipse:

The equipment used is a William Optics GT71, with the 0.8x flattener and ASI1600MM cooled. The telescope is mounted on a Skywatcher EQM-35 Pro mount with solar tracking turned on.

Enjoy! :mryellow:
