Post your eclipse photo's here

Went out with the intent of taking some people shots during the totality, hence the use of a 35mm, and decided to take a few shots of the eclipse as well. Nothing special, of course, 35mm is the complete wrong FL, but I got a few cool shots. I'm sure some of you guys got some great shots, so post 'em up!

Never was able to pick up a proper filter for my DSLR so I ghetto-rigged a filter made from a pair of eclipse glasses onto an old superzoom P&S camera.



Went to EclipseFest @ the Adler Planetarium. It was cloudy during most of the maximum coverage period.

Great shots guys. I was far from totality. Also, don't gasp, but I've never used solar filters going back to the May 1994 annular solar eclipse. You can hand hold the camera with the lens off the sun's centerline for a second or two to get the shot. So long as you don't lock the lens with the sun in view (like with a tripod), damage to the lens and sensor is zero. I've never damaged a camera or lens by not using a solar filter. The melting Canon video was for greenhorns, but needed to be shown because more people would've attempted just that.

I had to fight clouds for the second time since 2012, but they added a nice depth to the scene. No HDR in this shot as the clouds are naturally underexposed from the sun. 320mm effective at f/11.

We had totality peeking in front and behind clouds - I have the whole sequence on video.

Drove up to SC. 2 mins 30 seconds of totality and still you find yourself scrambling to get the right shots. Shot on Nikon d3300 at 300mm. Made my own filter for the partial stages like the shot with the clouds in it. Just 3D printed a cover that snapped on and off my lens.

Go figure that one of the rare times its cloudy and rainy was during the eclipse out here. Not sure what we would have seen as we were no where near the track. Thanks for sharing photos of what I couldn't see!

Was in Boston. No special filters. Just a plain old iPhone 5SE, which is why the pictures look the way they do. 😅
