Photographing August 2017 solar eclipse, selfie

Hello,

Im planning to make the trek to the path of totality for this eclipse. Ive seen a number of partial solar eclipses over the years, but never a total solar eclipse so this event is a rare opportunity to take in an event which has been on my bucket list.

Comet 41P/Tuttle-Giacobini-Kresak

Last night (31st March) I tried to image this comet. It is just below naked eye visibility, and although quite diffuse is visible through binoculars. To me, through 50x 70s, it looked like a largish, very dimly lit coin, with quite a sharp edge.

The comet was located between the Great ...
