Anyone going to try and shoot this?

I'm running out of days to plan a trip, let alone plan/assemble gear to try it. Boo....

I managed to get these using Spie filter material. They are meh, but better than I expected considering how quickly I hodge-podged my rig:

This was my best shot I think. Through a Harbor Fraught auto welding helmet rigged to work via an IR emitter. Canon 30D and a 35-105 zoom. Wish I had my wife's primes with me. The welding helmet worked great. Cranked up to 13 it was very comfortable to use with my eyeballs.

Watch the Smarter Every Day video where they get the shot of the ISS flying across the sun during the eclipse. Pretty funny stuff.
