Equipment:

Orion ED80T CF at f/6, Orion field flattener, Canon Rebel T6, Celestron Evolution mount (chosen for simplicity over polar aligning an equatorial mount during the day).  I controlled the camera via Backyard EOS.

Processing:

This is a single capture at 1/2,000 of a second at ISO 100.  Just a little curves, sharpening, and saturation boost in Photoshop CC.
Location:

Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area in southern Kentucky (about 20 miles as the crow flies from the point of greatest eclise), 2 minutes, 18 seconds of totality.  I was shocked at how visible the prominences were to the unaided eye!

Sorry for the late response on getting the winners posted. Was a busy weekend for me.

 

The winner is dfva! Congratulations! You did a great job pulling a lot of detail out of those proms without blowing them out. Great capture of the thin line of the Sun as well.
