Saw Me a Solar Eclipse

Composite image, heavy post-processing. I took these pictures without a solar filter. It didn’t even dawn on me to buy one before the trip. I’m a dumbass. Either way, here you go. This was the limit of what my camera could accomplish without additional gear. Next time I have the opportunity to see one, I’m getting filters. In fact, I should probably order a solar filter for my telescope too… like tomorrow. Now that I’m looking at it, given that these images were ultimately usable, I should have grabbed one more from when the moon was completely centered on the sun. By then I had already given up on getting a workable picture so I just enjoyed the eclipse for what it was. Oh well…
