Total Eclipse of the Sun

Drove up to Prairie City Oregon for the solar eclipse of 2017.  About 1400 miles round trip but worth it.  Shared the experience with about 250 people, a few of whom watched some of the event through my telescope.  Here’s a shot taken with my old Celestron C90.
As you’ve probably heard, a picture doesn’t do the experience justice; it’s pretty thrilling to see live.  And we were all grateful for very clear skies!
