8 Apr '24 Eclipse from Tucson, AZ

Post by WMoore »

Setup under clear skies and collected a full disk, high clouds joined us about an hour before the eclipse began. The clouds never fully blocked the sunlight so we were able to enjoy the event.
I've really enjoyed everyone's submissions on the forum, thanks for sharing your experiences and images!!

Cheers!
Wayne

Absolutely lovely shots :hamster: :hamster: :hamster: sounds like you had a great day. I think everyone seemed to be stressed about the clouds.
