Photos taken from a hill overlooking the beach near Antalya in Turkey. Hastily set-up tripod-mounted Olympus OM-1 300mm (no telescope) by first-timer.

Photos sent in by Tony Questa. The only processing done was to align the images for animation and to improve the contrast and brightness of one of the totality images. No attempt was made to rotate the images, so some camera movement can be observed in the movie. Processing and animation was done by James Wilhelm using the GNU Image Manipulation Tool and Gifsicle.
