Solar corona, Earth-lit Moon and stars
It is a composition of 23 images showing the solar corona in very high resolution and also the Earth-lit Moon and stars up to 11 magnitude. The brightest star (4 magn.) is slightly blurred by the motion of the Sun during the eclipse. The position of the Moon represents the situation 54 seconds after the second contact  (18:04:29 local time in Mongolia). Both the display of the solar corona and the lunar surface in the resulting image are beyond the ability of human vision during the eclipse. Total Solar Eclipse of 01/08/2008, Mongolia.
