Not really, my dog and some family are still there, can't say I am worried much, too much other stuff on my mind.

Updated the OP with some of our best photos, just so they're all visible in one place. :)

Well, I said I wasn't going to... yet today somehow the conversation arose with a friend of mine from Bolivia and now there's a slight chance this may happen.

Another image.  This time I combined several frames from the GoPro with some close-up shots to get an HDRish wide-angle view.  I love the way the colors turned out. ^_^

Yes, that's what an eclipse looks like!

EDIT: I'm not allowed to post too soon after a post in another thread?

There shouldn't be any limitation for that.  It's just discouraged to have several posts in a row in the same thread.

Makes sense.  But I got that error message when I tried to post here just after having posted in the science news thread.  I waited a minute and tried again, and then the post went through.  Not a big issue, but somebody might want to look into this if it's not intended that way.

Big Bump for the thread, but just stumbled across this video, which is gorgeous.  (He cuts off the engine for silence in time for totality).  Easily the best I've seen taken from the air.




I've also revised my corona processing again, and ended up with this.  Much less noise than previously. :)

Nice.  But you can easily remove the remaining noise.  For instance, try experimenting with selective gaussian blur in Gimp.  Use a low threshold in the center, and a higher threshold for the remaining area.
