    i broke out the telescope to play around with, but the real excitement for the eclipse to me was that it darkened the sky making saturn, which was kinda next to the moon on the lower left very nicely visible! titan was easily visible as well. i dont have a ccd or i'd put up some pics of that too :|

    Very Cool!!! Thanks for sharing! I went out with Binoculars and watched it for awhile since it was so clear out.

    I've asked for a 6" refractor telescope for my Birthday next week, we'll see if I get it! hahahaha.. I've missed my other telescope since I sold it 5 years ago.

    What did you use to take those shots?
