I hope the sky is as clear as it is today on eclipse day and the temperature a bit cooler. Less than 15 minutes to park, unload, setup tripod, polar align mount, aim, frame, focus, and take my first image.
The hardware stack: Sanford & Davis compact tripod, Manfroto Pan & Tilt head, Vixen Polarie tracker, ball head, Sony a6300 mirorless camera, Vivitar 200mm prime telephoto lens with 2X teleconverter (600mm FFE), and Thousand Oaks Optical Type 2+ glass solar filter.
The image above is cropped to the Sun. The total field of view is a corona sized 3.3 x 2.2 degrees.
