Video stream from Annular Eclipse

During our special Solar Eclipse program at the Mount Lemmon SkyCenter, we streamed live video of the eclipse via the Night Skies Network website.  Our stream was delivered using my Lunt Solar Systems 60mm pressure tuned Hydrogen Alpha telescope and an Imaging Source DMK 41 camera.  This stream went fairly well and was a dry run for our planned live stream of the Transit of Venus on June 5th.

One of the administrators of the Network, made a video capture of his monitor and posted it on You Tube...this is video of the portion of the eclipse which includes mid-eclipse...that is the time of greatest eclipse, when 87% of the Sun was hidden by the moon at our location atop Mt. Lemmon.
