Partial solar eclipse, Oct. 25th 2022

Solar eclipse from Oct. 25th 2022

I’m a tad bit late with posting recently because there are a lot of things going on. Still, I was able to catch some glimpses of the partial solar eclipse last week. The maximum coverage was about 82% in Russia. In Emden, Germany, the moon eclipsed about 30% of the sun at its maximum stage at 12:06 CEST. It started at 11:07 CEST and ended 13:07 CEST.

The day was a mix of sun and clouds so in the beginning I had to wait because clouds covered the sun for quite a while. Later I went out with my 3″ telescope and wondered why I couldn’t see anything. At one point I realized that my secondary mirror was hanging loose. So after some poor adjustments I could get it halfway aligned to see something.

The photos were taken shortly after the maximum coverage. Later it clouded up again and I wasn’t able to see more. In the photos you can also see some sunspots.
