Solar Eclipse Configuration


Been doing a little practice for the upcoming TSE. I decided to use my old IOptron MiniTower. It's fast to set up and you can mount two scopes side by side and skip the counterweight. I worked to add an adjustable ring to one of the scopes (an Orion Short Tube 80 which has an upgraded focuser that cost more than the scope), in order to align the two scopes. Note the live view of El Sol in both viewfinders. Plan is to travel NE to Eastern Idaho with my sweet wife and friends and rendezvous with my nephew and family who live very close to the centerline. Looking very much forward to celebrating under the Moon's shadow!
Clear Skies.
