    Default 2017 Eclipse from Oregon



    I was lucky to have family not far from the path of totality.
    So we drove for about an hour north from their place to Corvallis and I was able to see my first total solar eclipse.
    I followed advices from here and other forum to not take a telescope but just a camera an not worry to much about taking picture and just enjoy.
    Best advice EVER !!!
    I set some sequence on my canon remote, press the button and walked away from it
    And yea .. ECLIPSE !!! WOW ... speechless.

    Bonus.. I got some picture :
