Do Not Forget to Look (Eclipse cartoon)
(c)2012 Bill Kramer
A total solar eclipse is an awesome event. For the astronomy buff, the desire to try capturing an image or video is immense. And if the event is taking place near by you can bring a lot of equipment along. And of course, the more imaging equipment you intend to use, the less time you have to just observe. The important thing to remember is that you really want to SEE the eclipse. Spending the entire time imaging it is not the same as actually experiencing it with your own eyes. When setting up an eclipse run, plan some time to just look and don't miss the "wow!" moments.
