The Total Solar Eclipse in half a minute

I'm concentrating on different aspects of the eclipse in my posts. Today, I have an animated take on the eclipse experience. Condensing my 24 MP still images into a 640x427 pixel animated GIF requires a lot of compromise in image detail and quality. The payoff is that you can see the entire 3 hour eclipse play out in about half a minute.

A HD video version is available on YouTube.

The solar eclipse from Torrington, Wyoming, 2017-08-21 from 10:25 AM to 1:14 PM Mountain Daylight Time. Sony a6300 with Vivitar 200mm prime lens and 2x teleconverter mounted on a Vixen Polarie tracker. Thousand Oaks NiCr glass solar filter for partial eclipse. Partial eclipse frames ISO 100 for 1/100 sec at f11. Total solar eclipse frames from 1/1000 to 1/2 sec exposure without the filter.
