Yeah, I screwed the pooch, hemmed and hawed, and procrastinated on buying a solar filter for my telescope. So we're going to travel back in time to see how we did this in the old days.
My assistant, Pedro Glyph, holds the image screen, while I hold the solar lens(pinhole in heavy paper) and the camera.
We were a bit south of the totality path. This is the maxed-out partial eclipse.
Here's something I discovered. The solar lens doesn't need to be a pinhole in paper. Here I made a solar lens with my hand. The eye of this shadow-critter is the eclipse image. Mrs. UC just rolled her eyes at my great discovery.
This is probably the cleverest eclipse picture you'll find on the Innertubes. Yer welcome.
