Details:
A very lucky morning today to catch this partial solar eclipse in Maastricht, the Netherlands. Missed the sunrise because of a band of clouds, but then it was all worth my while. Best partial solar eclipse I've ever witnessed. Camera used Fuji Finepix S9600 at 300mm and with solar filter except for the first solar picture. Even with the small camerasensor one can easily see the sunspot when the moon has almost moved away from the solar disk. Finally got to use my China 2009 eclipse goggles...
