Moment of totality showing the moon and the corona, caught by a handheld cellphone through inexpensive filtered glasses. This is a photo taken by Mike Krywetzky, a friend of mine that accompanied me to view the solar eclipse. I thought this was pretty impressive for the inexpensive filter glasses. This is a pdevice it was taken with, considering that many others (including myself) use much more sophisticated equipment.
