    As I was using a 40 y.o. 35mm film camera, it took some time to get it processed and printed. I used 100 ISO film with a home-made special filter for a Kokin filter with film I got for the last eclipse. The lens is a 70-210 Kiron with a 2X extender, giving me 420mm. I got the "diamond ring" at both the beginning and the end of totality. What I did NOT get was the solar prominence that I could see through the viewfinder but forgot that the exposure for the photosphere (corona) would overpower the prominence, something I couldn't see without the longer exposures.
    From where I was at a cemetery in southern Illinois, I was about 30 miles NE of Carbondale and away from that madhouse. It turned out to be a good vantage point as there were no large trees within 50 yds. on the south side and on top of a small hill.
    These have been cropped in PS and are low-rez to allow for posting.

    Something I noted was the 4 jets of I assume coronal mass ejection, kinda a tilted north south east west that I saw with unaided eye and wondered if it was related to eye surgery, but every pic of the totality I've seen shows those same 4 jets, yours included in the second to bottom pic.

    Ali and Otto - thanks for the compliments.
    NATO - I don't know if those "jets" are CMEs but I'm doubtful. The brightness of the corona would likely overshadow the pocket of ions and particles. I also don't know if a CME would be large enough to show up.
    Ali - that's a cool shot of Sicily's Mt. Etna.

    You are correct sir. It was hanging on my kitchen window when I saw it drop to the ground.
