Images taken by W. Uddin, A.K. Srivastava, Pankaj Kumar , Ashish Kumar and N. Ojha
of ARIES, Nainital, India from Anji, China on 22nd July 2009.

A.K. Srivastava comments;
"The sky was not good unfortunately at Anji in the morning. However, suddenly just before totality the Sun became visible. I'm sending the red filter images which we have captured from here. We have more than 600 images at totality. I am sending some images taken before totality and 2 images taken during totality with a red coronal line filter (6374 Angstom, passband 3 A by 14 cm vixen telescope, 1K x 1K frame transfer CCD (pixel size=13 um^2, 16 bit) camera) for your kind perusal. These images have been taken at a faster rate, 2 images per second during totality which lasted 5 min 40 sec here at Anji, China. About 680 images were been captured during totality with the above setup."
