I'm late by a few weeks but here's my eclipse video. We were in North Kansas City about 45 minutes from my home.  I was going to go to St. Joseph but decided not to.  The weather was terrible until about 11:45am and then by Totality the sky finally opened up enough.   I had my Celestron CPC1100 out with f/6.3 reducer and Nikon 5300 sale.  Unfortunately the only good open area we had was on the wooden deck so there is a lot of vibration in the video but working on post processing to get that out.  For now this is just a raw video with music added.  Excuse the people talking, I think everyone was in awe.   Totality starts at about 1:35 into the video and I sped up the moon coming in.  Once totality was over, you can see the clouds moving back in and then it started pouring again! We got very very lucky that day, will never forget it.

 

Make sure you select highest resolution in youtube

The shaking was a bit "iffy", yet the thin clouds passing through was "unique"...

Nice video.

 

So amazed that this happened over my home town.... even though I was forced to travel to Kentucky.
