It is nice, but I'm still not sure I understand the point of taking this image when NASA can take a virtually identical photo any day of the year - much investment to take just one version of unique image. I was in path of Eclipse, but I spent Totality photographing students at local college experience the Eclipse .... something that NASA is unlikely to ever duplicate.

This wasn't for work, it was for fun So glad I didn't have to work during the eclipse, and I took days off just so I could have a great time enjoying the eclipse alone and away from distracting crowds. I guess just about any astro photography at all is completely futile because NASA

It's about the doing I think. I started doing AP on a complete shoestring DIY basis a few years ago(I had mostly clouds for this event) and have been practicing and growing better every clear night I get the chance to. Look at it this way. I recently went to Mabry Mill on the Blue ridge Parkway...super, famous tons of photographs out there. 3 other photographers in the field at the moment I stepped out with my tripod carefully avoiding shadowing any of them...why do it? (shrug) Was it jsut a place to end up after 2 hours of back country driving and scrappy looking leaves? Do I think I can do better than Mr. full frame slip filter Sony rig who says "I've never had them give me trouble about that stay behind the fence sign." ? Nope. Just filling the can, so to speak.
So why do anything someone else can do better? Sure SOHO probably had all the science, but DOING it... that's the trick.

Solar just needs a filter btw. Tracking is nice though.
