Nikon D810 controlled by Solar Eclipse Maestro Software running on a Mac Book Air, a Nikon 200mm-500mm lens @500mm, and an Astrotrac Tracking Mount. The set-up and automation produced beautiful images allowing me to view totality through binoculars with my own eyes without worry or distractions of operating the camera.
