Once the totality got close I stopped messing with gear and just watched. I was projecting the image through binos on a card and using a Sunspotter.

That Sunspotter gizmo is nifty - can you see sunspots with it?

Yes! I got bot sets very clear on the projected image. I anticipate that these will all start hitting the used market by the end of the month. I bought mine used for about 200 shipped. 200 is about the upper limit of my "Eh, what the hell" impulse budget.

I am filled with want.
