Here was the eclipse shooting setup, as you can see the clouds made things interesting.  Me and scope lower right, with the 300mm lens mid-lower-left part of the frame.  Note green blob from lens flare near the cabin shows the sun being eclipsed.

Thin Moon Sinking into the Trees

Saturday's Moon sinking into the trees. This is a nice representation of what it looked like visually; orange and with some earthshine. The moon is about 5% illuminated and 2 days old.
