Practicing for Monday's eclipse

There is a nice grouping of sunspots today which should also be there on the day of the eclipse. I photographed them while ago using the A-68, my 70-400mm G2 and home made sun filter. ISO-200, f8, 1/320 and the sky here is pretty clear now.

Sadly, I will not see totality, but should get some decent shots of about 75% coverage.
