Details:
It was scattered clouds in Tucson this morning impeding photo plans. To my eye looking through a Questar telescope with an axial Nikon D810 (for these photos) this eclipse was never completely total. There was still a bit of bright moon visible throughout the predicted totality times. The long exposure does amplify the remnant moon, but it was there to the naked eye as well. The scattered clouds might have amplified the ozone produced color in more partial phases (shown), it was easily visible to the eye, better with a photo. The Questar-D810 camera was tracking on a iOptron mount
