Instrument   Canon 350D + WO Megrez 480/80 (F/D 6.0) refractor, composite of 6 pictures
Exposure & film   1/4000 s on
Date & place   November 6, 2006, Pointe de la Torche (Finistère)
As expected, the green flash appears. The sky is so clear, even near the horizon, that the Sun is blinding even one second before it disappears. At 1/4000 s at 200 ISO, the Sun disk is overexposed (the white area).
Through the camera, I see a nice blue flash, but my eyes were influenced by the orange tint. In the photo, a bluish zone is barely visible in the penultimate shot. The presence of the inferior mirage magnify the height of the green flash, facilitated its observation.
