I used Astro Physics 105mm Traveller and Nikon D7000 to capture some shots of the recent solar partial eclipse. There was some overcasted cloud to block the view at the first contact. Luckily, I got the better view at the final stage. But it had the optical distortion affected by the atmospheric turbulence at low horizon during the sunset.
