Argentina TSE 2019

Stephen Russell


On the afternoon of 2019 July 2, a total solar eclipse travelled across Chile and Argentina. Getting accommodation within the path was difficult, particularly when my tour organiser changed the schedule without notice. I ended up basing myself in Mendoza, the Malbec capital of the world. This meant a bit of driving on eclipse day, but everything worked out well.

This talk will explain the good and bad parts of organising this trip, and building the image processing software process to merge the 100 images I captured with two cameras during this eclipse.
