Below are the photos I took using my camera! I left Sunday evening (8-20-2017) at 11 PM. I drove the 635 miles to Clemson University and got there at 8 AM on 8-21. I slept for an hour in my car, then went to the park area and took these photographs. I left at 4 PM and got home almost 12 hours later at 3:30 because the traffic was so bad!

John let me use the filter from the top of his telescope (all my orange pics were taken using it).

 

Just starting.

Some clouds got in the way:

Back to the filter as the clouds moved away:

 

It started getting dark:

 

The eclipse was almost full:

 

Totally full eclipse with a hint of the sun flares on the upper right and the lower right:

 

Coming out of the 100% eclipse.

I was at the 100% line!!
