Hey all,

Wanted to share some images of our little solar eclipse party here in Florida. We were not ready to travel with all the little kids, so we settled for the partial eclipse that we got at our location (approximately 90% coverage, was still great to see). I have a lot of equipment and set it all up and as people drove by they stopped to look, along with friends & family that gathered. We grilled steaks & veggies and had tons of iced tea to pass the hot day. The great shadow was eerie indeed, everyone was a little spooked. Even more spooky was how all the crickets, local animals, etc, stopped making noise during the peak of the eclipse--unnatural for them too, just made it even more spooky. We had a great time. We had a couple of scopes setup and one was setup with a monitor to view real time. Two scopes were setup for Hydrogen Alpha viewing and one was setup in White Light. We had lots of white light solar film filters that were visors to pass around too.

+++++++++++++++

Can there be an exception for such an event with the embed limit pretty please? :-D:oops:

There are many more, please if you care to see the instruments and everyone taking a look, browse Flickr. Thanks!

I guess you can take a shot of the sun anytime you want with that Telescope ... Heck of an extension tube for birding images..

This is awesome. I enjoy your post here and I am not sure which I enjoy most..the excellent images of the sun and partial or the images of your family/friends experiencing the eclipse and using all your awesome gear to view it.

Thanks for sharing. I was mostly looking forward to seeing what images you were able to produce..and these are excellent.

Thank you, Martin! Couldn't wait to see what you would produce...but my favorite is the three children huddled together, with the umbrella in the background. That is good old fashioned "Americana"!
