Here's something a little different regarding the April 8th Total Solar Eclipse. I had my PegasusAstro Ultimate PowerBox v2. running during the morning of the eclipse and taking temperature readings every 10 seconds.
This is a graph I made from the data output in an Excel spreadsheet. It is interesting to see the max dip lag behind the actual totality by a few minutes. The very strange gain in temp on the far left of the graph is because my mount was in the shade until around 11am local time.

I was just outside of Morrilton, AR at Dr. Clay Sherrod's Arkansas Sky Observatories for this event. We were 5.3 miles from the centerline of the eclipse.
