It took me a while to get around to posting this. There were thin clouds that progressively got thicker by the time the eclipse started. It didn't help things that I was out imaging the night before and such slept in. By the time I setup the Lunt 50mm the eclipse was already happening. I did manage to get a halfway decent shot considering the conditions down here were less than ideal to say the least. Anyhow, I used my Lunt 50mm with my ASI120MC-S. I stacked the best %25 of 1000 frames in AS3, and processed with IMPPG and Photoshop CS4. Thanks for looking and clear skies smile.gif

i had bad luck too, i took an incompatible mount...  but what can you do in that situation?

 

I hope that you were able to view some totality between clouds.
