Partial Solar Eclipse
On May 9, IfA hosted an event in Kapiolani Park to encourage the public to safely view the partial solar eclipse. About 1,000 people joined us during the event. Alex Dzierba, one of the Friends of the IfA, brought his own solar telescopes and imaging setup. He created this stunning image during the eclipse using a DMK51 camera mounted on a Coronado PST solar telescope with a Ca/K filter. He stacked 60 exposures, and colorized and sharpened using Photoshop.
