The following sequence of images were taken during the partial phases after totality by Mike Lancaster from GŁndogdŁ on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. From GŁndogdŁ third contact (the end of totality) was around 10:58 UT (13:58 local time) and fourth contact (the end of the eclipse) was around 12:13 UT (15:13 local time). All pictures were taken using a hand-held Olympus Camedia C-4000Z digital camera pointed at a Meade 40mm Super PlŲssl eyepiece inserted into a 90mm Meade ETX-90 Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope. A screw-on BCF white light solar filter was also used on the telescope.
