Yet another post on the eclipse. Last time (2014) I photographed the eclipse with my 55-300. this time I sacrificed some reach for some speed and went with an old favorite, my trusty A70-210 f4 on my loyal K5-II. A humble setup to say the least but that's what I got.
Most images were at ISO800. During Totality it was cranked to various up to 16,000

...and yes, I'm sleepy at work today

Very well done, Ismael - awesome results and a great composite image. Skill - and knowing the gear you're working with - almost always trumps "better" kit, as you've ably demonstrated

Creatively thought through prior to doing the image.
Good and impressive.
