High Dynamic Range Imagery

With some more time back at the regular computer, I have had the ability to merge some of the eclipse images together to make a solid HDR image of totality. This is what I call quite the Photoshop workout. This is a merge of 12 images ranging from innermost corona out to the outermost corona that did not wipe out the moon’s dark disk.  Some 20 hours went into this. The star to the lower left is Regulus in Leo.
