OK, maybe fishing related, tides and all, but I enjoy this stuff and as I recall some of you are quite knowledgeable.

Since I'm usually getting up around 2AM this won't be hard for me to catch. Here we are looking to be right at the tail end of weather front so it may be good viewing, or not.
I'm not fancy, but I got a simple tasco scope and an old transit. The transit was nice for the last solar eclipse because I got a filter for solar obs.

The dog got me up and out at 3:00 AM. He usually doesn't do that, but he must have watched the news and wanted to get up early to go out to see it.

Thick clouds greeted us - no eclipse to be seen.

We had beautiful clear night. Took about 200 shots, need to stack some, but it turns out my imaging converting software is no longer compatible with the latest Mac OS update (figures). Here's shots without any editing:

Before penumbral eclipse began (01:43 AM):

Same here, too many clouds. Came in just before the eclipse started and left just after sunup. Oh well, fishing was good later.
