Lunt Engineering 102mm f/7 Doublet with a Lunt White Light Solar Wedge on a Losmandy GM8 equatorial mount. Image capture using a Point Grey Research Grasshopper3 2.3MP monochrome camera and Fire Capture v2.5. This setup yields a full disc image.

I have grossly overloaded myself. Lunt LS100 DS w/ZWO 1600 for partials, Nikon D810 w/600mm +1.4x for totality, another D810 for a multiple exposure image, a Nikon 1 J5 w/ 300mm for a time lapse video and two GoPro cameras for wide angle video. Plus a dram of Laphroaig and a Padron 1926 "80 year" torpedo for after. ;-)

72mm grab and go f6 refractor with Lunt B600 CaK module, Basler acA1920-155um camera and a couple of accessories to get the image scale required. WL filter and a dose of good luck...... ;)

Just about anything that shoots in my bag of tricks. All DSLRs from Nikon: D90 D700 D800 D810a and a point and shoot. Also my GoPro and maybe even my drone! I have a 127 mm scope that may not even come out but will have it out for deep sky imaging, Sigma 150-600 with a 1.4 with an adaptive glass filter that was originally for my scope, a Sigma 150-500 on my Quark that I am having some issues focusing and or getting the correct exposure, a Nikon 80-400 that may go on the Quark instead, a 20mm wide field for video of event. And a similar one with the GoPro. My friend just said that he wants to go and I will have my drone to play with and I might have the drone image the totality on its own.

Still in the planning stages based on a number of filters and filter sheets that j haven't even taken into account yet.

I'm just keeping it simple- a white solar filter on my telephoto and my iPhone set to timelapse mode, in wide angle and unfiltered.
