  • I should have posted the link to the strap I have: https://optechusa.com/classic-strap.html But I think the others have the same qualities, so it may be a matter of preference.  The one above has ...
  • For heavier cameras I really like the OP/Tech USA neoprene straps.  The weight distribution is great, and there's a flexibility in it that somehow makes the camera seem to weigh less.  (plus it's ...
  • Sure looks like it's in the right spot.  Thanks for looking it up! According to this, I think I saw Venus or Mars as well, maybe both - details are kind of fuzzy. I'm still a little puzzled by what ...

    I'll bite. I was bracketing and got blown out right after the totality and saw a shutter speed of 1/32,000. I knew the camera can do things that I can't set manually, but...wow. So, that, or ...
  • Jerry, I had to laugh when you mentioned luck - I had the same feeling about managing to get any shots at all, and yesterday while writing down everything I could remember about the experience I ...
  • Beautiful, unique shots.  I love the crescents on the ground.  Wish I'd looked down a bit too - I had read that might happen, but it was one of the many things I forgot to do. And I think the ...
  • Wonderful captures - thanks for sharing them and starting the thread. Hopefully I'll have time get to my pictures soon - played hooky from work on Monday and have to catch up a bit before I can ...
