Partial Eclipse

Given the weather I'm only slightly surprised to see so few shots of the eclipse.

I set up my scope and despite clear sun five minutes before and after I was never able to get it on the sensor - the sun wasn't bright or strong enough to cast a dot in my solar finder.

Ironically it was so weak through the clouds it was possible to see the eclipse naked eye towards the end, so I ran and got my bridge camera and tried a few shots at focal lengths up to 1000mm equivalent F/L and 1/2500 second, using my mount as a support! Contrast was very poor, but I got about ten usable shots.
