Here's a fresh photo of this morning's eclipse. It was beautiful through the eyepiece but capturing it in an image was a bit of a challenge thanks to the huge dynamic range. In the end I decided to take 3 exposures of 3.2 sec, 1.6 sec and .8 sec at ISO 320 and stack them together to achieve 1 image that captured all the tones well.
