Just a quick upload before I go to bed far too late.  I need a darker template on my website but it'll have to do.

Nice! and a clear sky. We have to wait a year or so to see one.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone.

We didn't quite get totality here.  I think the photo I posted was about the maximum.

I realised partway through the eclipse that having the stars in there was a bit more interesting. I didn't quite go this far though...
https://xkcd.com/2463/

Exposure was done through trial and error.  The histogram was of no use.  I found that exposures of several seconds caused a bit of blur so I settled on 1/2s at ISO800.

Getting it reasonably in focus was largely luck.  Infinity focus is pretty hard to get manually with that lens.  At first I used AF, then when the moon became too dark I switched to manual and used Live View zoomed in, which wasn't amazing in such dark conditions but it did the job well enough.  Once it was set I left it there.  I was taking my chances a bit as I had the lens wide open to shorten the exposure.

I was also quite lucky with the weather.  For most of the evening we had a lot of patchy fast-moving cloud at low altitude.  It mostly cleared away about 15 mins before the eclipse started.  Before the eclipse I could see the moon through the cloud but it would have made things difficult as the moon darkened.

Cheers,
Dave
