Longhorn Eclipse from a Wyoming Hilltop

The partial eclipse a few minutes before 2nd contact, with some well placed sunspots from the Questar.

Taken 2017-08-21 17:39 UT from near Torrington, Wyoming. Questar 89/1350 mm, f 15, telescope with Sony NEX-5N mirrorless camera at prime focus. Deconvolution in Lynkeos and final crop and exposure in photoshop.

Thanks to our viewing buddies AJ and Kimberly from Colorado and from the UK Graham and Joanna and their friends for great company and Deidre's for her well prepared hilltop location.

I've uploaded video of our reactions during totality with a good view of the approaching shadow of the moon to Vimeo.
