Videos of Solar eclipse from March 2015 in Romania.

Image with Nikon D80 / 203 mm Newtonian telescope / time 11:18 min.

These videos were made by Sony CX130 video camera mounted on a tripod (beginning and end of the eclipse) and on the Newtonian telescope 203 mm (maximum of the eclipse).

All filming lasted 1:15 hours, which I edited it in different ways and for different purposes.

These edits lasted 7 days during which the laptop was put to hard a hard stress, from simple cutting clips, changing playback speed, correct positioning of the Sun at the center of the image, up to making Gifs.

 A partial eclipse of the Sun took place over Romania on 20 March 2015. Sun eclipses occur when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, and therefore totally or partially blocks the Sun's image from the perspective of the observer on Earth.

 Video captures of the event can be seen here.
 Nikon D80 DSLR Images of partial eclipse of the Sun can be seen here.
 You can view Gif images of the eclipse here.

In this article, were posted videos of the eclipse. These are edited in high speed, to be observed more easily the transition of the Moon in front of the Sun.

Above is a video of the entire partial Solar eclipse.

Above is a video of the beginning partial Solar eclipse, made by Sony CX130 video camera mounted on a tripod, without telescope, having glued a Baader solar filter on the objective, special for observing solar eclipses.

Above is a video with maximum partial eclipse of the Sun made by Sony CX130 camcorder attached to the Newtonian telescope. On the telescope was mounted a Baader solar filter.

Of course the image is much closer to the Sun and much clearer.

Above is the end of the partial Solar eclipse shot without telescope like the start of eclipse. Towards the end of the event, there were clouds which didn't threatened with anything the observing the Sun disk, but rather has become more interesting, as can be seen in the short video below.
