I've finally gotten around to going through all these pictures I took.

The Eclipse as seen through a photolithographic plate captured by a XZ1 Compact.

The first pictures didn't look good, this is a 7 year old phone after all.

However, I had the idea of trying manual mode, and settled on 50 ISO, 1/30 SS, manual focus around 2/3-3/4ths towards the infinite end, and wow, it's actually pretty good for such an old phone.

During totality I removed the filter and looked at it raw, adjusting ISO and shutter speed varyingly. Here are the rest of the best of pictures from this.
