VIDEO: Three Solar Eclipses 2017 2023 2024 



 Three Solar Eclipses 2017 2023 2024. Once you've seen a solar eclipse, you feel the need to see another. This time is tough because the next solar eclipse in the US of A is in about 20 or 24 years. I may not live to see it so I'll have to travel to see the next one. I'm fine with travel being retired and all. I shot 2017 using a Canon EOS 5d Mark I, a 70-200mm F2.8 L Canon Zoom and a Canon 2X L Doubler. 'for a filter, I used half of a pair of cheap solar viewing glasses they handed out free everywhere. It worked great! For 2023 and 2024, I upgraded to a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, a Sigma 150-600 Sportsman Zoom Lens, 105mm ND F22 Filter, 95mm IR/UV F18 Filter Increasing my focal length from 400mm F5.6 to 1200mm F8. The larger lens definitely made a huge difference in the image I was able to capture. The solar flares of 2024 may have not been visible if I was still limited to 400mm as in 2017. We did quite a bit of traveling to make this video and suffered several truck breakdowns and truck camper structural failures. I ended up doing more repair work on the road than I normally do at home.
