All-in-all it was a great day, with the clouds being sporadic enough that I was able to get the scope back in focus (note to self: go with the setup you tested, not your ‘day-of’ good idea) with about 5 minutes to spare before totality. Probably got a little more sun that I intended, but at least had a hat on for the majority of the day, so my bald head was spared the brunt of Sol’s wrath. And since a day like this wouldn’t be complete without friends, I’d be remiss to not show off the folks who came in from Florida to stay the weekend and hang out come the day:
