A holiday gift wrapped in a clear, deep-blue sky was delivered to much of North America on Christmas morning 2000, as the continent witnessed a partial eclipse of the Sun.  Below are some results of my efforts to capture the eclipse electronically.
 

Photo of Sun taken through 4-inch f/9.8 refractor with an Olympus D360-L digital camera.  Foreground also taken with the Olympus digital camera.  Images combined using Adobe Photoshop.
