The problem is that, like the Grand Canyon, even the best pics don't do it justice. You really have to see it in person!

I gave up taking pics after a few tries and just watched through the diamond ring, after which the sun peeks out and you can't look any more.
Do you have questions about God?

This is a stack of 25 images shot during totality of the eclipse. Stacking exposures from 1/1600 to 8 seconds. The 8 second exposure was also processed separately to bring out lunar detail. Shot with my Canon 6D DSLR, Skywatcher ProED 80mm APO F/7.5, Celestron AVX, Orion Field Flattener. Stacked and processed in Photoshop and Lightroom
