While is also a new moon, it’s a very good opportunity to get all my gears today for the #SolarEclipse2017.  It will be a partial eclipse in the San Francisco  Bay Area with around 75% of the Sun covered by the Moon.

My primary scope will be the ED80-CF telescope with white solar filter from Orion.  Instead of the ZWO ASI 1600MM camera, I’ll be using my Canon SL1.  Hopefully everything will go just right and be able to stream it live via YouTube.
