I couldn't believe my good luck to have the shutter set to an appropriately short exposure at the moment the diamond ring occurred, and I was luckier still to be able to get a second shot of the diamond ring at 1/1000 second (on frame 37 of a 36 exposure roll of film, no less!). The emerging Sun, while still overexposed, is less so, revealing the red chromosphere around the limb of the Sun as the Moon uncovers it.
