An upper image shows you the corona's extent captured at the almost maximum eclipse. The image has been displayed by turning the celestial north direction upward and cropped with an equivalent focal length of 700mm. The image covers a field angle of 2.93×1.96°. In that day the sun positioned in the western Leo, you can detect the Regulus in left edge of the image.
