IMG_1441.CR2I viewed the eclipse from a state park at the western edge of South Carolina, and here are my photos.

The cameras and settings for each photo are detailed on each photo's page; the ones I shot with my Canon EOS 60D were through a 15-year-old 90mm Meade ETX telescope with manual tracking.

Appalachian-style tripodThe skies started out clear, but we started to despair as heavy clouds approached just before totality. Fortunately, the worst of it waited until after third contact, with a relatively thin veil of clouds slightly obscuring the details of the corona during totality, but all in all, the effect was still dazzling.

Oh wow, what an excellent set! Thank you for sharing.

I also enjoyed your eclipse buddy, and the tripod made of branches. :)
