Solar corona, streamers and earthshine on the Moon


The beauty shot. Technically, I used a stack of five images with different exposure times, blended to approximate the view through a pair of low power binoculars. It is worth noting that the point of light at the left edge is not a defect - it is the star Regulus, in the constellation Leo. Another star is visible near the right-hand edge. Yup, the stars do come out during a solar eclipse.
