Nikon D5000, Sigma 70-300mm APO set at 70mm. ISO3200, f/4, 5 seconds.
Perfect weather but strong light pollution. Totality saw the moon dip between two trees, allowing me to frame a very familiar shot with some textured foreground. A bit of postprocessing reducing the sodium glare and brought out surrounding stars.
