|Do Not Miss the Eclipse!|
What you do not want to do is overwhelm yourself with too much equipment. Having too much equipment means you will need extra time to set up (and tear down if moving to a different location at the last minute). Anything more than a camera or a telescope or a set of binoculars is too much. I speak from experience. It was not until my fifth total solar eclipse that I was able to operate multiple pieces of equipment without my hands shaking.
