It’s a wrap…
Thank you for permitting me to work from your church.

On-Site Validation and the end of my planning for 08/21 photos
This validation was helpful and will save time Monday. I know where I should place equipment to best capture the eclipse on the First Presbyterian Church Grounds.
It is not where I set up on arrival [above]. The sun’s path is masked more than I thought by the oak tree behind my equipment. Clear sky is necessary for easy tracking and usable pictures–at least I hope so… I relocated here and believe it is best of the options at the church.
Anyway, I will be proximate to my three systems.

Thamks to iOptron Support–Kevin & John, I am now comfortable with tracking at 800mm STILL, spot on 30-minutes later.
Today was to have been onsite test shooting; however, I needed to resolve shooting the sun near the zenith. Thanks to Kevin and an email picture, that is resolved.
I shot a few more foreground pictures with my iPhone. I did not have my DSLR wide angle lens [for RAW photographs] with me. Maybe, I will have afternoon sun again before Monday. Rain is in the forecast. Nonetheless, progress…
