The crescent sun.

Imaged with my LUNT ls50tha with double stack module and ASI 174mm and 2.5x power mate. Had intended to do the imaging through the LUNT Herschel wedge but didn't have enough in travel so had to try something else out on the go as the eclipse was starting. So not used to trying to image through the Lunt.

I'm sure the obvious issues are present in the smaller image. If not, well I forgot about the newtons rings at higher magnification.

I'll probably toss most of the data in the bin.

At least I tried. Was originally going to focus on visual but started to fiddle with the second imaging rig. I did spend the later half just watching through the h-alpha scope and I'm glad I did :)

Edit:
Looks like I posted this in the wrong thread seeing I wasn't in the path of totality... Perhaps it needs moved to "Partial Solar Eclipse Images (a thread for the rest of us...)" In solar observing? Sorry about that mods.

Solar Eclipse Apr 8 2024
 
Single frame photo, using a Meade ETX 125 and samsung galaxy S22 phone from the north Denver area around 1140AM MDT.   
 
Seeing was so so.  High wispy clouds during the eclipse (of course its clear as a bell now).  The edges of the sun and moon were "wavy"--my words.   I was able to focus and get detail in several sun spot groups during the eclipse but photography was frustrating and that is the best it gets.
 
I told myself last fall to get a better camera setup and man do I wish I did.

Didn't get skunked in Texas!

 

Didn't get sharp focus but with the clouds we had I'm happy.

Here’s a couple more very quickly processed. Need to get home and spend a bit more time and care in processing but over all I am pleased.

Clouds almost ruined everything I had about 30 seconds of clearish to capture this with my svbony sv106 guidescope and sv305 camera.

I'm really surprised my images came out this well given that we had high level dogs#t clouds and nasty contrails everywhere.  It was pretty abysmal.  

This is from Indianapolis, IN.

And the kind of clouds we had all day here.

We got lucky here in Northeast Ohio! Some high clouds, but didn't ruin the eclipse at all. I snapped a few pics with an Android cellphone, through my Tele Vue Pronto using a 17mm eyepiece. I didn't waste much time with pics, as the naked eye view was splendid!

We had high clouds but could see the Sun well enough here in NE Ohio. 

 

I am surprised how visible the Corona was given the hazy clouds.

 

I just took some photos with a Canon R5 and 400MM 2.8. I didn't bother with the scope. Was mainly looking through binoculars and naked eye and stopped here or there to take some photos. I just used my R5 and a Canon 400 2.8 with a standard sun filter I made.

Huge thank you to the folks of Edinburg, Indiana for rolling out the welcome mat. Could not have asked for better weather, nicest people and great food.

So one captured the extent of the corona. Glad I saw it in 2017. The flares I saw were more impressive in person, like a glimpse of hell, but these sure do give an idea of what people could have seen. Glad people got pictures.

I have a whole lot of images to go through, but I've quickly thrown some up.

 

Once I get back from Mexico, it's going to be a lot of post processing tutorials for me.

I was fortunate to be in Maine, and fortunate that I live in Maine. We've had some lousy weather recently, but holy god was today off the charts amazing. A blue dome like I haven't seen in some time. I was at the airport in Carrabassett Valley. Amazing.

I actually didn't realize until recently that I got Saturn lower right. Didn't expect that, and didn't notice it in person.
