Photographer JunHo managed to capture the Great American Eclipse up-close, and in 4K quality, using a 2160mm f/12 telescope, Panasonic GX85, and a RST-150H robotic mount by RainbowAstro to trace the edge of totality. "RST-150H weighs only 3.5kg (7.7 lbs) but carries up to 15kg (33 lbs) of optical equipment without any counter weight.
