Tim, is that a Celestron scope? Camera mates with a T mount? 30 some years ago I saw Saturn thru the big scope at Griffith's Observatory - was about the same apparent size but no color visible.

Yessir.

The camera is far more sensitive than the human eye to color and detail which is why there is a higher levels of both than if you just peered through the eyepiece.

Nope.

I watched and photographed the eclipse from Kentucky Dam State Park in Calvert City, KY.

There are some great digital SLR out there and I would love to have one. But remember, the best camera is the one you have with you. They do you no good if awkward to carry or use. Hence the popularity of the cell phone cameras. The key element to great shots is the person taking the shots. Study your subject, frame the shot, and use the cameras capabilities.
