Description

The second part of imaging the eclipse for me was getting a larger star field with a camera lens to combine with the detailed view of the eclipse. It would be cool to get this in one shot but it is quite unlikely as imaging stars blows out the moon so you have to combine it with a second lower exposure image.

The wide field image shows the bright star Pollux in the upper left side of the image and the Beehive Cluster (Praesepe or M44) on the middle bottom of the image.
