One of our Association members who is a contract weather observer at KTYS took these incredible photos of the Solar Eclipse from Lenoir City, TN.  He used a T3i Canon camera mounted to a Schmidt Cassigrain 8 in meade telescope. He used A-Focal with a field flattener. The tracking mount was an LX5 (very old school). The camera settings varied quite a bit to get a wide range of exposures, speeds and ISO settings. The telescope was unfilted during totality but he did use a higer image temp settings for the yellow pics. Also when he used the lower ISO to somewhat under expose the photo, he got a more bluish tint photos.
