And the 360 degree totality panorama upload finally worked. None of my regular pictures came out well, but I rather liked these two.

Adding to my earlier post, I used Picturenaut (free!) to get a nice HDR composite with earthshine and the corona:

 

Solar Eclipse Composite

 

If you look closely at the Moon's top edge, you can tell it has moved during the bracketed exposures, making the stack slightly out of sync, but for me it makes little difference.

 

Another EDIT:

 

A really nice view of the end of totality with the chromosphere in full view:

 

Sort of Diamond Ring

I've nothing real great for photos...ended up having about 8 people using the scopes so was managing that and keeping them open for visual. Naked-eye at totality, visual C90 MAK and Mack The Newt views throughout were spectacular! My friend Dayton took many pics with his phone through eyepiece, so have to get those.

 

One with Samsung S6:

edit: Oh, from near Kansas City MO. Rained like crazy down there 12" over 2 days, but rain/clouds moved out and sky was clear until just after totality ended.

I was viewing in Fairmont Nebraska (usual population 506).  The clouds were ominous and uncooperative as torn8o showed in his pictures taken in nearby Beatrice Nebraska.  However, 20 minutes before totality, a hole in the clouds appeared and we were gifted with a wonderful view fairly cloud/cirrus-free.

 

I took some pictures and they look like pig spit.  The only way to know what was happening to the sun was to see it in the glints.  However, I took a picture while driving that probably best describes my morning up until the hour before eclipse start.  I imagine quite a few other people have a similar picture to share.  (Photo taken ~9:30AM near Concordia KS driving north.)

 

The irony is perfect.

lol - that pic gave me a good laugh. I know exactly how it felt and was close to giving up. Glad the clouds gave you a break and you were able to experience it.

We had a great time in Sunset, SC, just down the road from Table Rock State Park.  These are some of my favorite images from the eclipse.

Thanks for the link, I really loved the review. My favorite line:

 

“That was what ‘awesome’ actually means,”

 

Refers equally to the eclipse and your stunning record of it. Of course the only line I had a problem with was how the author said you "had a much more capable photo apparatus" than he, and that was how you made better photos. Dumb-4ss.

H Alpha ISS Transit Time Lapse

 

I know NASA got the shot, and i believe one other person that I have come across got the shot, I would like to share my shot that I got in California on the side of a road in a tiny town called Huron.

 

Was very exciting to see it fly past on my screen!

Amazing.  this thread is going to get big. Here is my earthshine.  Untouched out of the camera.  

 

Canon 7d Mark III, Tamron 150-600 at roughly 450mm.  On cheap GEM taken with an autosequence on Backyard EOS

 

I also got video of the Shadow bands as they streamed across the Snake River.  Awesome once I realized what they were.  Having a hard time uploading the vids so you can try and see them on the Flikr page.

From Glendo WY

 

Conditions were perfect. Corona was so bright!! Skies were clear enough to easily see Jupiter. Just an awesome experience.

Temps dropped significantly and so did the wind during totality.

Here are my favorite bits from the eclipse:

 

C3 Diamond Ring
C3 Baileys Beads
Prominences
Corona
Earthshine
C2 Baileys Beads
C2 Diamond Ring

Unfortunately I wasn't able to travel to totality but here is my view from NY. This is only the second time I've used my camera hooked up to my telescope.Celestron evolution 8 and my e-pm2 micro 4/3 camera.

Niiiiiice! I wanted to do H-Alpha of that but it wasn't in the cards. Yours might be truly unique. :)

Heres one of my photos...of many. 

Nikon d5500. f5.7, 300mm, 1/350.

 

 To those who missed it.... Dont miss the next one! My photos are not the best....simply because I focused on watching instead of taking photos. All of my shots were with camera in my lap aimed up...and I just got lucky they were in the frame. I was looking up. WOW!!!!

Yes but that gave you a pretty cool and unique photo!  waytogo.gif

 

I tested a lot before our trip but never for the full cycle because I only wanted shots of the moments leading up to and during totality. On Monday I set up my scope early in the morning because people were stopping by, asking for a look. About 10 minutes before totality I realized what was going to happen if I didn't flip it, and FAST... It has been a long time since I hustled that quickly to get something done!  grin.gif

Thank you all for the awesome photos of this event! Here is my humble contribution from a point and shoot Nikon, out on Center Hill Lake in TN. Saw Venus and Jupiter as well. Nothing short of amazing! Can't wait for the next one!!!!
