This was my first total solar eclipse. had a great weekend with the camper trailer, found a great spot in the middle of nowhere right in the middle of the path of totality. I had a lot of gear setup ready to go. i was taking shots every 90 sec. through the eclipse using my QHY8L camera on the back of my ED80T CF to create an animation of the eclipse. but once totality hit i took a few shots and then made the mistake (not really) of looking up at the eclipse with my eyes. i got lost in the eclipse and missed out on all that planning i had done to get a few good shots during totality. i dont regret looking up, it was a life changing moment i will always remember. i was in such awe, i messed up the remainder of my 90 sec interval images and did not really get that sweet shot i was hoping for. i did however find an accidental 4 sec shot (i thought i was taking a 40 ms shot). turns out the 4 sec shot captured some earth-shine on the moon and revealed some moon surface detail. so this is my one kinda cool shot. wouldn't trade the experience for anything.
i will include a link of the video i put together of the trip. it includes the animations i got, but its not the whole thing, its only the first half through totality.
