NASA Edge - 2017 Eclipse Info, Live Web Cast by Lunt, etc.

https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov

Edit: On August 21st, there will be a live NASA webcast on the link above featuring the use of three 230mm Lunt Solar Telescopes fitted for Hydrogen-alpha, Calcium-k, and White Light. The images will be captured using monochrome cameras made by RED, processed in real time and broadcast live as seen from Carbondale, Illinois (UTC-06:00) on the above site in 4k.

Good question, a red-only sensitive camera wouldn't work with Ca-k. The cameras are true monochrome, "RED" is the manufacturer, each one costs about $20K per unit! I've edited original post to reflect that. Thanks!
