You saw my pics with both the floppy discs and the welding hood, but there was an unexpected surprise....at the peak of the eclipse, when I tried to take a pic, it kept appearing as a red dot (green for welding hood).

Edit: Something else I noticed, I'm north of the path of totality, you're south. And during the event, the toenail clipping appeared above the darkness; down your way, other way around.

Same here on the slow to focus, on the other hand focus time is MOL normal if all you want is a pic of the sun. That last pic I shot came out great, no idea how it got that cool red halo round it but I didn't do it! That pic reminds me of the crescent moon that is proudly cut into the walls of every real outhouse here in 'Merica.

It just looked like pacman for me. Kept the temperature down a few degrees, so I have that going for me.

It was pretty cloudy here so there weren't really good shadows and honestly not even much of a temperature drop

So that's pretty exciting and they aren't really all that rare. I might try to start making a point of traveling to some close by

We had one of the longest times of totality here it was over two and a half minutes I think and it seemed to fly by like nothing

I think it's something like 3 a year. This one was rare in that it went coast to coast across the US. A lot of times they are in the middle of the ocean, hit some small islands, or an ice cap type of dealio
