Default Solar eclipse or toenail clips?

Did anyone else see the eclipse last evening? Sort of looked like a giant toenail in the sky to me...
Here is the view from the San Francisco area

Note the sunspot on the right side.

Image was taken through with a Nikon CP 990 eye piece projection from a Vixen 4" refrator telescope with solar filter.

Default Solar Spectacular!


Great shot! I wasn't sure if I could use my camera to take a shot of the eclipse--now I see I would have needed a solar filter etc. Phew!

Thank-you for posting the photo. It looks great. I tried reflecting the mirror on the side of the house and it's just not the same as seeing it like in your photo!
