Way to go on the APOD Anthony! Many of your images of the Sun have tremedously dramatic backdrops and are indeed awe-inspiring.



Best Regards,



Dave

Yes! As soon as the page loaded (my home page) I knew it was one of Anthony's - way to go Anthony!

Thanks everyone for the kind words! It is very much appreciated.



I have some work coming up in May when the rising sun will have an azimuth of 65 to 70 degrees and which will allow me to capture Sol rising behind the Parthenon.



I now have my AP 2x Barcon and which works wonderfully with my Tak FSQ-EOS 350D and by yielding a true 2x magnification when imaging.



My strategically-chosen distance from the nine locations I have identified in conjunction with my FSQ-Barcon combo will yield a very nice aspect ratio of Sol and the Parthenon (1:1) as well as a very well-framed field of view.



In addition to Sol, I plan to do precisely the same with the rising full moon and which is a little more challenging since it requires the sun to be 4-6 degrees below the horizon in order to have a balance in the lighting between my foreground (Parthenon) and the rising full moon and in addition to the existing restrictions related to azimuth and altitude.



I promise to post results in May as results become available.

A little late but I just had to chime in.



Take away the 5000 year old ruins and what do you have? Just another

sunset? (G) Sorry Anthony but those of us that live where the oldest man

made structures are less than 200 years old can be very jealous. As always

your images around the fabulous Greek ruins are awesome. Good luck with

your planned new images.



Jim

Antonio/Jim, thanks!



There is no question in my mind that the incredible ruins from the Golden

Age of Ancient Greece are one of our greatest inheritances and I am very

eager to incorporate them into my astrophotography-related work.



Of course, the local authorities are very good at putting up many stumbling

blocks to my efforts but I may have a way out of this little mess. ;-)



Anthony.
