SeTnC seems pretty cool, slick and simple.

So, after I test things out and confirm things are operating as expected...On the DAY of.....all I need to do is ensure the focus and zoom is set and point the camera where I need at Start?
Then move the camera throughout and ensure focus is good, while its clicking away at the timed intervals and exposures?

Of course, I will remove and put back my filter.

Please advise.

Thanks!

I just discovered that in 2024 I will be able to see a full solar eclipse right from my backyard (Hamilton, Ontario), for the whole 2 minutes! Weather permitting of course.

It looks like Dallas will get a total eclipse.

I am getting ready already. :) I live about 5 miles within the path of totality but I'm driving to be right on the center line this time. :)

BTW, I found this site (external link) filled with Google Earth overlays of many eclipses.
