HDR Composition with PixInsight. 8 subs range from 1/2 second to 1/320 second. PI's Unsharp mask really helped with the corona. My NP101is did an excellent job of holding focus throughout the entire eclipse. No re-focus was necessary due to temperature drop, because while it did get chilly at totality the chilliness only lasted about 5 minutes so its effect on the OTA was negligible.
