Hi, First of all, well done to Steve Rector. I really enjoyed your video... I also did a video but with much less resolution. I used an ETX-90 scope to project onto paper that I mounted in a little sheet metal device I created (actually left-over roof flashing!) I mounted a small webcam near the eyepiece so that it could create video of the image on the paper. Passers-by could look at the paper and see the projected image of the sun. Got a lot of good comments. I used HandyAvi to do time-lapse imaging at one frame every 10 seconds. The link to see the video as well as the crowd at GRCO is here: http://www.astroshow.com/Eclipse/Gilbert2011/GilbertEclipse.html I handed off my Nikon camera to someone (don't know who) to take pictures of the crowd. My little telescope was set up in polar mode but not well-aligned. I used a compass to point it north and hoped it was level and set it for 33 degrees Dec. So I was totally busy using the hand-control to keep the sun's image centered on the paper and did not have time to roam about taking pictures. Thank you to whoever took the pictures! I am going to use this same setup to photograph the Venus transit. With luck I will get the scope aligned the night before... :-) I had to register the images by hand using the Process->Align... Overlay mode of Maxim DL. Labor-intensive to register 600 frames! Did eliminate most of the bouncing around of the sun's image in the final video through this means. Could not do auto-align of the images because the "center" of the sun moves about as the shadow covers it...
