Very nice!

You ought to check out the 'Righty - tighty, Lefty - Loosey' rule when setting up your extension arm. Some would go further and counter-balance the light & sandbag the stand - but the first bit is critical.

That was 721 pages ago & was violated in post #3, so since the title says nothing about flash... ; )

Thank you! My setup was very secure, but I will keep this rule in mind, many thanks.

Yeah. I immediately went to the first post to check the rules.

Even though the thread is IN the Flash and Studio Lighting forum, it says nothing about flash must be a must:

I was wondering that it would be cool to post pictures in two parts: first, post picture(s) to show us your setup (placement of camera, strobes, reflectors, etc.) and then the final result(s) of that setup. You would also list all of your equipments (shown in picture #1) that you used to produce the final result(s).

And indeed, the first setup posted was a telescope with an astronomical image! :eek:

If you combine/photoshop post three with the eclipse picture you will have prove that you have mighty strong camera flash. You would need a pre-sync of 2.6 seconds.

Ok, fine. Eclipse from Austin, TX

Setup for this one was a 1D4 + 100-400L Mk I with a 9-stop ND filter:

This one is my sun funnel, which projected the eclipse for my coworkers to view without glasses. This was shot from my Google Pixel:
