Equipment
Nikon D5100 at prime focus on a Newtonian reflector (D=250mm), ISO 400 & shutter speed 0.25 sec.
Description
High and low level clouds made it very difficult to get a clear shot of the eclipse. The low level clouds were moving quite fast ahead of an approaching cold front so gaps closed almost as fast as they opened.
