Abstract: Results of the preliminary data reduction of the eclipse white-light corona polarimetry by a portable low-scattered light coronagraph are presented. Broad-band RGB polarization recordings (movies) were obtained in the range 1.05–1.5 solar radii. A special algorithm for data reduction was used to get the 2D distributions of the linear polarization degree in the green and in the red spectral intervals with an accuracy of 1%. Polar plumes are evidently traced in the polarization patterns. Everywhere in the corona the polarization degree in the red is 5-25% lower than in the green.
