Eclipse & jet
Lens: DA* 300mm + Promaster 1.7x Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Kent, Wa ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1s Aperture: F5 
Posted By: c57d, 01-21-2019, 01:10 PM

All these years living by an airport finally paid off.
It was cloudy here all day and I grumbled about living in the Pacific Northwest and missing another celestial event.
When lo and behold, the clouds break and the moon is shining!
I had to rush inside and cobble together gear to cover the eclipse.
The camera was set up for a remote 3 second delay and this is the only one of 3 jet pictures that turned out since I had to guess when it would be in the frame.

You can even see the engine from the flash of the strobe.

Thanks. I'm happy with how low the K-1 noise is.

Awesome job! The streaks give a abstract feel in a way, gives a since of how small we really are!
