Canon 400D @ prime focus of 4inch f/10 reflector on altazimuth mount & glass solar filter.The focuser was too tall to reach focal plane using adapter.So removed it & cam handheld over barrel.
Partial phase of eclipse a few minutes after 1st contact.cloudy weather prevented 1st contact visibility.No cloud free view of sun throughout the event.We hardly managed to get all equipments indoors as rain put a fullstop just before 2nd contact @ 6pm
