Date/Time of photo
The attached image was taken using a Star Adventurer tracking mount to carry an Orion ED80T CF Triplet Apochromatic Refractor connected to a Canon 700D DSLR whose exposure sequence was controlled by a windows laptop running Eclipse Orchestrator..
We had perfect weather for the entire eclipse. Being my first opportunity to view totality since 1991, it was a highlight of my last 50 years as an amateur astronomer!
