The Las Cruces area was treated to a partial solar eclipse on October 23rd, 2014. I brought ASLC's single-stack SolarMax 60 scope to work, and set it up for public viewing in the mid-afternoon. Near the end of the event, I pulled out my iPhone and snapped a few shots. One turned out pretty good.

The image on the right was done a week later (for Halloween).
