These were taken in central Nevada along Rt. 318 on the centerline of the eclipse. Weather was perfect. Shot with a D200, 70-200mm f/8 @ 200, TC-20E, B&W 486 UV/IR filter, B&W ND 3.0 and B&W ND 0.9. Exposure for all shots: 1/2000 @ f/11. White balanced to Macbeth chart shot with above configuration. Last photo had exposure upped in Lightroom 4 for balance and clarity, probably due to IR filter attenuation. All photos were identically adjusted for WB, NR applied, and sharpened. All cropped for appeal. Gear sat on a Gitzo tripod and ballhead, cable release used.
