Great American Eclipsewww.ArtPal.com/nicolaslefaudeux
I am an optical engineer and photographer passionate with physics and optics.
The 2017 Eclipse was my first Total Solar Eclipse (ignoring my overcast 1999 experience that took me years to recover from) and a long-term personal project. I worked for several hundreds of hours on it, defining my setups, optimizing my scope for contrast, designing 3D printed parts for automation, making rehearsals, and developing the algorithm to make high quality HDR composites.
Everything worked perfectly and it was an unforgettable experience.
