Diamond Ring - Totality

Diamond Ring - Totality

One of a number taken during totality. Astromer I'm not, but I've been led to believe that the reds and "diamond ring" effect is due to craters on the moons rim.

Sorry, but this was BD (before digital), actually before AF as well, so I cannot pass on exposure details. The cloud cover helped rather than hindered. It meant I was able to focus looking directly at the moon rather than any indirect method.
