If anyone is planning on observing and photographing this summer's total solar eclipse, a group at the Space Science Lab at UC Berkeley are in need of photographers to contribute their images. Their Eclipse Megamovie project is looking to get photographs of the upcoming August 21st total solar eclipse to build a movie of images from coast to coast. They need skilled photographers to help create the movie. Their goal is to recruit over 1,000 amateur photographers and astronomers who will be on the path of totality on August 21, 2017.  Their list of equipment needed includes a DSLR (I plan to use my D7100); telephoto or zoom lens with a minimum focal length of 300mm; tripod; and identify the GPS coordinates and time to the nearest second for the images. https://eclipsemega.movie
