Thanks Mark! I had a SCT-Meade 16" and I had a snap on metal rimmed solar filter for it.
Yeah I should have taken some images when the eclipse hit totality. I have a 500mm lens for my Canon's.
Great images Mark!

I have a Celestron 11" SCT but I hardly ever use it. I even left it set up in the yard under an all-weather cover, and that hasn't helped with use.

I had all three custom functions set up so I could quickly take a bunch of bracketing exposures without spending all of totality fiddling with the camera. Those three minutes flew by.

Yeah had that same feeling Mark! I would have put a dome on the deck for it but I never did. Instead I put "wheely bars" on the tripod and just pushed it out onto the deck when needed.

I made my own cart some years ago, but didn't plan it out very well. It barely fits through the shed door. Garage would be easier, but not with the street light in front and the sloping driveway. It's on the wedge because I was hoping to try some photography.

Your 16-inch was/is a monster scope!

After days of fretting about the weather and a determination not to miss this eclipse like we did in 2017, our little gang left DFW @ 8 am and kept driving north and east until we found a beautiful, almost cloud-free, hole in the sky near Mena Arkansas...we had not planned on going that far, but we were far enough from home already we kept at it.

Found a beautiful church on a hill with a wide open parking lot with about 25 or so members lying around watching the sky, they welcomed us with open arms!

It was an amazing experience.
The light, the dark, the wind changed direction, the temps dropped, the birds stopped, the mailman stopped, then when the light came back the dogs next door barked and a rooster crowed!

The whole thing blew me away!





I was so amazed by the sights that I was a tick late to catch the "diamond ring" correctly...this will have to do.



Sunset all around!

Thanks for sharing your story Zane. I was prepared to be underwhelmed and the only reason that I captured it al all was that Hillwood asked me to shoot the gathering at Perot Field. The experience was as you described it and everyone was mesmerized by the whole event. You deserved what you captured, Mena isn't a hop, skip and a jump from us, you earned it.

Jim,

458 Miles on the clock yesterday. But we are the kind of people who will drive to Santa Fe and back for a three day weekend

A road trip is good for my soul!

I know what you mean Zane, even if itís for an assignment, I feel like I leave a ton of minutia behind when I roll out of town.

One of the most meaningful experiences of my life, spending a morning with the four surviving Doolittle Raiders and having them sign one of my prints...........

Have entered into a huge "copyright" infringement with the DoD.
They have posted a picture of my mother in the Navy and took credit for her picture!

I have asked for a "retract" from the San Antonio JB.GOV. Doubt I will not get a bunch of crap now!

But found this!

I am sure my Texas brothers already know this....
