Here is how I saw it between clouds in Germany with old trusty, my Zeiss Telemator. Great show!

I just used some eclipse glasses. No photos. Drove at 5:15 to a nearby hill with a lower eastern view. Initially saw the sun at about 5:35, with a bottom crescent, about 70% covered, which quickly turned to a crescent more on the southern side, gradually growing in size. There were clouds on the horizon that intermittently blocked or fractured the view. As I left, abut 6AM, someone else had just pulled in and was getting out an ETX90.

I have to confess my betrayal. Although I prepared a filter for my Royal-Astro, out of laziness I gave up carrying it to the motorized mount and used the Chinese Sky-Watcher which was ready to go. As proof of this vile betrayal of Japanese classics, I am enclosing a photo. I made my betrayal in Poland, near Krakow:

Well, we'll keep it a secret...
Great picture! Thanks for sharing. I was trying hard to get an image of the sunspots but failed miserably. Fast moving clouds, unstable air at my place near Frankfurt.

Thanks! Unfortunately, this time there were no large, spectacular sunspots. However, I have seen photos of several colleagues from Poland who managed to photograph the ISS transit during the eclipse.

Both a Vixen ED80SF, and a Orion ST80. Set and ready to go from Roxbury Airport at 5am. Probably first noticed it around 5:30. Beautiful sun pillar before sunrise. My image doesn’t do the morning justice. Clear and steady skies, Dave.
