Went to Columbia, MO for the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017. I took along my 8 inch Celestron telescope and DSLR and got some cool pictures through the combination…

The color variation is from processing at different temperature setting in Lightroom.

 

Moon eating sunspots…

 

This last one really shows the solar corona.

 

This was my first try at doing some real astrophotography with this setup.  Hopefully its a good start.
