I will be on board the Holland America Volendam cruise ship with plans to be in the Makassar Straights for totality. We will be at sea which of course means the platform will be vibrating, maybe rolling a bit, and the exact position of the ship relative to the eclipse will remain a variable up until the very time of totality. Portability is best.

So my equipment list is modest. Binoculars, a small camera, and a tripod. Getting pictures before and after totality of friends and family are best done with a basic camera. During totality I am going to use a wide angle lens with the goal being to catch the horizon, sky, and silhouettes of fellow chasers.
