Image Details:

Not a lot to tell viewed the eclipse at my backyard in West Palm Beach. Started viewing at around 10:15 pm and finished at 1:45 am. 54 degrees at the time of the start and 50 degrees at the end. With the 15 mph wind chill factor it was 47 and down to 40 degrees towards the end. I'll tell you this, that this 69 year old South Florida boy was froze by the end of the night. This was one of my better shots considering the wind which was shaking my telescope.
