Quick'N'Dirty Eclipse from FL - FE100-400mm + 1.4X TC

Unfortunately, not in the path of totality and not at home where I can access my computer for a proper editing suite with real resizing algorithms...but figured I'd share a shot of how the eclipse looked down here in South Florida, where we were at about 81% coverage:

This was transferred from camera to Windows 10, and resized using default 'photos' viewer from Windows - nothing fancy unfortunately.  I had no solar filters or ND filters - just straight camera and lens - using the A6300, with FE100-400mm lens and 1.4X TC, shot through cloudy skies (which acted as my ND filter of sorts).  I also set down to ISO100, F45 (Yes, you read that right!), and 1/4000 shutter speed.  Major diffraction territory at F45 and I saw spots and stuff on my sensor I never could imagine...but I wanted to protect the sensor best I could.
