Thx, I used my Panasonic FZ1000 bridge camera, 1" sensor at 200mm, 2-3 secs, f4, ISO 400. I cropped it about 20% in Photoshop.
I wedged the camera against my column on my patio to keep it steady because I didn't bring my tripod and the wind was blowing
10 mph with gusts at 4:30am. My 1st few shots had movement in them at 15 seconds. I wasn't expecting an almost total eclipse here in Cholla, because the expert articles (LOL) showed the western US only having a partial one.
Here's what I saw when I looked out my patio door to the west,
it's got movement but gives you an idea of how nicely surprised I was to see this.
