    Beginner here, but figured i'd try my hand at the eclipse. I found shutter speed around 30 seconds to work best. I am just using the standard Canon Rebel XT kit with kit lens. Couldn't zoom very far. I also found it very hard to manually focus in the dark especially when i couldn't even see the edges of the moon clearly with the little zoom i had.

    Wow dude, That looks almost exactly like mine.

    I found that 2-8 seconds with the aperture all the way down worked the best. I tried doing all camera stuff but that did not work too well.

    Do you happen to be in the Missouri Area?

    I'm in pennsylvania. It's 10:48est now, it's just starting to turn back to a partial eclipse, so i'm going to snap some more then and see how it turns out. I took a few of the first partial but was screwing around with settings on my camera so i couldn't get anything good. I want to get the white color of the moon more defined.

    Welcome, this should probably go in the gallery.

    Nice shot for the gear you are using - 18-55 mm kit lens?

    It does look fairly sharp, even though it is pretty small.
