Shot with a Nikon 1 mirror-less camera, 100 mm zoom lens, at f8, and using a solar filter. I set up this camera to automatically make an image every minutes. Because of the magnification, the sun moved out of the frame twice during the first half of the eclipse. The images were over exposed by camera, so I corrected them a bit in lightroom.
For the 2017 American eclipse we drove north east to Nebraska in order to experience the totality. Back in December I booked a room in Sidney NE, which is 80 miles south of Alliance NE. We choose Alliance because it is only town in Western Nebraska close to the centerline of the eclipse path.
We woke up Monday morning and looked out the motel window to this;
Pea soup thick fog. We drove for an hour and a half through the fog and reached Alliance around 9am. We had reserved space on some private land and set up multiple cameras to record the event.
