Zeiss makes amazing optics!  I am jealous, I would have loved to check them out.  Those solar flare shots are really cool.  Was that through a telescope or monster zoom and a teleconverter?  

 

I still own two older Sony DSLR's that I like shooting with (A200 and A500) but I didnt have the right filters or very good glass for them to shoot an eclipse.  I mainly shoot with two primes for my kids photos.  I took a chance with my wife's SX50 and am super happy with the results.

He brought telescopes with filters and another piece that tracked the eclipse taking shots every 5 minutes. My photo is a cell camera shot of the telescope image. Will post better photos when his site is updated.

We drove 3hours and 45 min to a little town called st Claire mo.
Took 7 hours to get home ( traffic). Thankfully. I just finished my rear entertainment install over the weekend and we kept the kids reasonably occupied the whole time.

Thanks for posting photos.

 

I was in Greenhorn, OR near Prairie City did not encounter traffic or shortages.
