M8 and Eclipse

Did anyone take eclipse pictures during totality with a Leica M8? Without a UV / IR cut filter this should be the ideal camera during totality. I used a Nikon D5 that has the UV / IR cut glass at the sensor. A picture is posted in the eclipse thread. For my next eclipse I will use my Leica M8.
