partial solar eclipse

Today there was a partial solar eclipse visible from Austin. It started at 16:17 and ended at 17:59 local time, so I brought my telescope to work and set it up in the parking lot so everybody could see.

It was partly cloudy and I estimate that for about 50% of the duration of the eclipse, the sun was obscured by clouds. However, I managed to get some clear pictures, even though my aging Canon S110 digital isn't the best platform for this sort of thing.
