I like to shoot at 1/160 and f/11 at ISO 100. Using a remote release and mirror-lock up has really improved my shots, too. Before, without the remote release, I noticed some CA around the edges... now, that's all gone and shots are always sharp. Have fun tonight guys... total eclipse is at 10:01 p.m. EST!

I've been running between my computer and my camera, and now I'm off to the camera again. Total eclipse should occur in less than thirty minutes.
