Eclipse progression with EOS 7D MkII and cheap kit lens 50mm-250mm
6

My house was pretty close to the center of the eclipse path (2:00 minutes of totality).  I've never shot astro photos, but thought I'd give it a try.

A week ago, I bought a first-gen Canon 50mm-250mm kit lens for $75 on Amazon to give my camera more reach for the eclipse, and rigged a homemade cardboard sleeve with TIG welder's glass for a solar filter.  All shots handheld.

I'm pleased with the results.  Start at top left and go clockwise, obviously...
