Large Custom Prints of the
1999 Solar & 2000 Lunar Eclipses
On August 11, 1999, the Sun was totally eclipsed by the Moon from Europe, Turkey and the Middle East. Five and a half months later (January 20, 2000), the Moon was totally eclipsed as it swung through Earth's shadow. Eclipse chaser Fred Espenak captured both of these awesome events on film and has produce two large 16" x 20" custom enlargements.
The solar eclipse print is a digital composite produced from 22 separate exposures. Espenak used Adobe Photoshop to enhance and combine all his images into one grand composite. Previously, Espenak used this process to create a photograph of the corona which closely matches its true appearance as seen by the naked eye. Additional details and deluxe prints of this photograph are available at Composite Photo of the 1999 Total Solar Eclipse.
Espenak has now produced a new version of this remarkable eclipse image. He used the processing power of Photoshop to reveal and greatly enhance coronal structure to create a truly eye-popping image. If you look closely, you can even see mare and other lunar features on the dark face of the Moon!
The total eclipse of 2000 Jan 20-21 was visible from all of North and South America (including the USA and Canada) as well as western Europe. Espenak has captured the essence of the event in a composite sequence of three images shot at the beginning, middle and end of totality. The series encompasses the 78 minute period while the Moon gracefully glided through dark umbral shadow of our planet. The deep red colors are due to the filtering and refracting effects of the Earth's atmosphere.
Deluxe enlargements of these unique images are now available as custom 11" x 14" and 16" x 20" prints on Kodak Ultra III. This paper has incredible sharpness, brilliance, contrast and color. Under normal viewing conditions, it is rated for several decades with no perceptual fading. Please note that these deluxe prints DO NOT have any copyright notices or text on them which would mar their beauty!
