These are unprocessed, hot off the memory card and aggressively downsized. I think they look pretty good in the rough! I should have some really fine totality shots when I merge the images shot at different f stops. I had the camera pre-programmed to shoot 7 bracketed images at 1 f-stop intervals, so I could just stand there gawking at the sky while I pressed the remote over and over again. What a great experience! My first total eclipse.

Our group was on the center line north of Torrington WY. We set up on some State-owned ranch land. It was marked "No Trespassing" but a genuinely cool Wyoming State Trooper invited anyone who asked in through the gate.

Nice! We did a lot from Bar Nunn, a bit north of Casper. I has a Shadow Band Detector set up, which worked fine... and probably detected nothing. Tom
