Eclipse real life experience

Camera A77II

Lens Sony 70-400+2x Teleextender with variable density ND filter just resting on the lens (did not have proper rings)

Setting Manual Mode, Manual Focus, 1/100 sec, F11, Jpeg+RAW, Auto WB

Tripod, Gimbal mount

I have a Tamron 70-600 but the 70-500 plus 2x plus 1.5 crop (1500mm) fills the frame plus the ND does not fit the Tamron. I read several articles on speed the are forgetting even with the gimbal it does not point straight up resulting in tilting the tripod, so I went to a faster speed than the recommended 1/125.
