Jumped into the car and drove far enough to beat the Upper Midwest cloud deck.  Cedar Rapids, Iowa was mostly clear and lots of people enjoyed the eclipse from a park with us.   Took some photos with an Orion ED80 and Canon DSLR.    Fun !

Here's another near-Chicago panel. All but bottom right were taken via projection onto a foam-core board. Bottom right was through the eyepiece of the first sunspot to emerge. Great weather in northern Illinois.

MacP, what filter were you using?   I'm blown away at the surface texture showing via projection!
