I used my Canon 5D Mark III with the Canon 100-400mm 4.5/5.6 IS II lens
Some friends in Rigby, ID opened their property for people to camp and view the eclipse. I went to an open field with no one around and sat next to a tree in hopes to use the leaves to frame the eclipse. This shot was taken at 371mm at 5.6 for 0.3 sec at ISO 200
