I was lucky to have ended up at this observing location with such excellent weather. When planning to view total eclipses, I am advised to arrange for other activities as well; the eclipse itself is subject to fickle viewing conditions (my one prior total solar eclipse effort was thwarted, but the travel experience was rewarding nevertheless).
While I was mesmerized by the experience and NOT taking pictures, my script-driven camera captured more than just background stars for measuring gravitational deflections. Here are my three favorites.
The end of totality marked by the “diamond ring” left a lasting impression; a signature of the unique event we had just witnessed.
