Solar Eclipse: to IBIS or not to IBIS...

Using an OM-D E-M10 MK1 with 75-300mm probably at 300mm during the totality.

It will be on a tripod using a remote shutter release set to bulb, while the camera is in burst mode. I figure the more shots I get the more shots I can choose from, or maybe even stack a few.

That said, what about IBIS? I can have it on, have in on for azimuth only, have it on for altitude only, or have it off.

I do hope for a less cloudy evening so I can practice each of these modes on the moon tonight.

Anyway, I was thinking about this today wondering if the IBIS might actually help with an E-M10.

And on a side note, when you turn the IBIS off, do the magnets hold the sensor in place?  seems like if the camera is off the sensor could easily shake.

Thanks ahead of time for any and all feedback.
