All of the 1998 Total Solar Eclipse images were taken on

the photographs (save one) were taken at prime focus of
a Celestron C-8 telescope with optical reduction to f/6.3.
ASA 100 Kodak Professional color negative film (PRN) was
used. The smaller scale image was also taken on Kodak Professional
color negative film, with an 85mm lens at f/2.8. Exposure
was 1/30th of a second. Cameras were ancient Pentax Spotmatics.
