On Monday, August 21, 2017, the universe will reveal itself in an epic show more astonishing than anything ever devised by the magic of Hollywood or Disney. The Sun, Mother Nature’s multi-gigaton, 24/7 nuclear inferno in the sky, is going to put on a show. This will be the first US coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in 99 years, placing totality within an over-night drive of 320 million Americans.

This is the most complete guide to the 2017 eclipse that is available. It includes everything you need to plan a successful viewing experience, with dozens of tips from veteran eclipse chasers:

* Where to see the eclipse and instructions on how to observe it safely.
* Over seventy high-quality photographs, diagrams, detailed maps and tables.
* Simple explanations for how it all works, including the corona, Baily’s beads, the diamond ring and more.
* What gear to take, including eye safety filters, binoculars, and how to get the best pictures from your camera or smartphone.

The shadow of totality will carve a 2,527 mile path across U.S. territory–never touching land in any foreign country–making it the first ever “All American” Total Solar Eclipse. Beyond this narrow shadow of totality–about 60 miles wide–everyone else in the continental US will see a partial solar eclipse. This promises to be the most viewed and photographed eclipse in human history.

Viewing a total solar eclipse is an emotional experience that should be on everyone’s bucket list. In 2017 the eclipse will occur in our collective “backyard,” an ideal time to take loved ones on an adventure of a lifetime.

“Planning an eclipse trip without this book would be like traveling to Italy without reading Rick Steves’ or Fodor’s travel guide.” – Craig Small, Hayden Planetarium Lecturer and Eclipse Chaser.

“This book saved hours of research and gave me an appreciation of eclipse phenomena I didn’t realize I was missing.” – Ara Nazarian, Author of “Technical Minds” and Senior Vice President Engineering, WiTricity.

Product description
MYNT3D Professional 3D Printing Pen

Hold the magic of 3D printing in your hand with the MYNT3D Professional 3D Pen. Now you can use FDM technology in any application varying from drafting and prototyping to spatial learning and three dimensional sculpting.

Whether you’re an engineer or an artist, the MYNT3D Pen will take your design projects to greater heights.
Fast, Slow, and Anywhere in Between

One speed isn’t good enough for your car and it’s not good enough for a 3D pen either. With the MYNT3D Pen you can crank up the extrusion speed for larger fill in areas and turn it down slow to create intricate works of art.

The stepless design lets you dial in the optimal speed for any task you can throw at it.
Works with Nearly Any 1.75mm Filament Under the Sun

While some competitors make you use proprietary filament, we at MYNT3D believe you should be able to use any thermoplastic you wish. ABS and PLA are a given, but what about wood or bronze infused filaments?

If it is 1.75mm and melts between 130-240° C, then it will work in the MYNT3D Pen.

Recommended temperatures:
ABS: 210° C
PLA: 175° C
All other plastics: Reduce temperature relative to recommendations for 3D printers.
But wait, there’s more

Ergonomic shape keeps the controls always within reach and let’s you manuever the pen in ways that would be impossible for a larger design.
The MYNT3D Pen is USB powered so that it can be used with battery power banks (with at least 2A output). Take your projects outside or on the go!
A temperature mistake with another pen could send it straight to the garbage. With MYNT3D we’ve got your back with a modular nozzle design that can be replaced in a matter of minutes.
