    My area will get 92% coverage - could drive 3 hours north to see total but I ain't driving that far unless I KNOW there won't be clouds. Here there is 0% clouds predicted. Was practicing tonight with the camera to see if I can get some shots. With stacked ND filters at f22 at 1/4,0000 I get pretty clear resolution - but sometimes there was some ghosting. Will figure out what is causing that tomorrow and get my settings locked down.

    This is going to be in a great position relative to where I live it looks like (I'm just outside Eureka on the Northern California coast)... however they're saying we have a 60% chance of fog that day. I think it's suppose to be around 4:45 PM so hopefully the fog wont be moving in that early.
