Gazing Up At Totality - 2017 Total Solar Eclipse

During totality, Fred Espenak takes some time to view the corona through his binoculars. His two Losmandy equatorial mounts each carrying two telescopes were automated to shoot images throughout the 2 minutes 26 seconds of totality. The twilight effect surrounding the horizon is cause by scattered sunlight from outside the lunar shadow. A thin layer of cirrus clouds were present and interferred with some of the outer corona imaging.
