Description The total eclipse of February 16, 1980 was successfully photographed with the High Altitude Observatory's coronal camera from a site in Palem, India. The purpose of the experiment was to obtain, with high spatial resolution, polarization and intensity measurements of the corona to about 3.5 Radius. The exposures are now processed, raster scanned, digitized and stored on magnetic tape, and we are in the process of obtaining the final photometric calibration of the exposures.
